27 Feb (ACCT13017)


Martin Turner here.

Welcome (again) to ACCT13017 Financial Statement Analysis – and especially if you have enrolled in our unit over the past few days.

This is my second email to you.

It is my pleasure to be your Unit Coordinator for ACCT13017 And it is great to have you in our unit this term.

In case you missed it, my first email to you is here.

It contains important information on how to get started in our unit.

And do not forget to get started on our reading for Week 1 (Preface and Chapter 1 of the Study Guide) and to get going now on PeerWise.

Already, 9 people have registered on PeerWise – and 4 people have written 19 questions and given 46 answers to these questions. And two people already have a score on PeerWise of about 350. Way to go… As we know, there is a great advantage in getting started early on PeerWise.

And 11 people have already joined our unit Facebook page – and there is quite a bit happening on our unit Facebook page already.

Three people have also set up their blog and posted a link in the Blog Links forum. Why not check them out and say hi. One of these blogs is Jemma Ahmann’s blog. Jemma says: “I’m looking forward to this unit and love the fact that we are ending our degree like we started it in ACCT11059, with blogs, PeerWise, KCQs, engaging with students & having an assigned company to learn about… It will be great to see how much we have progressed and learnt over the course of our studies in business/accounting!”

Great to have you in our unit Jemma – and to everyone who is joining us as we explore further the (possibly) exciting world of accounting and business. Lots of challenges lie ahead for us in our capstone unit for our degree … as we build on what we have learnt (and perhaps not learnt!) about accounting and business in our degree.

I look forward to working with each of you.
