Face to face teaching
This unit will be taught in the form of weekly lectures and tutorials. Students are required to enrol in one lecture (1 hours of face to face teaching) and one tutorial (2 hour of face to face teaching) for this unit. The teaching strategies are outlined below:
A one-hour lecture will be completed every week. It is expected that students complete their prescribed reading for the week prior to attending the lecture.
Each student must register for a tutorial and must attend the tutorial that they have registered for. There will be a two-hour tutorial each week from weeks 2 to 13. Students must finalise their tutorial enrolment by end of Week 2. Tutorial changes can ONLY be made through eStudent. Students wishing to change tutorial times should log onto eStudent and enrol in a class where there is a vacancy.
If you attend the tutorial that you are not enrolled in, it will not be counted toward the attendance record, with an exception of tutorials held on the week of public holidays. It will also not count towards your assessed coursework. No exception for tutorial attendances and late assignments will be granted for students who are enrolled late in this subject.
Your attendance may not be marked if you arrive more than 15 minutes late to your tutorials unless there is an appropriate reason provided to your tutors.

E-reserve: Students can find extra readings on a link on the university’s website, called e-Reserve. Some of these extra readings will be used for tutorial activities and lecture content. Students need to download all relevant information to complete their tutorial questions and their learning objectives.

Research and Practice, Global and Sustainability
This unit addresses global and sustainability issues as direct areas of study and as necessary implications arising from the materials, assessment and academic discussion and debate in classes/seminars. We promote sustainability by developing ability in students to research and locate information within the accounting discipline. We aim to provide students with an opportunity to obtain skills which will benefit them throughout their career.
The unit's textbook has a reference list at the end of each chapter containing all references cited by the author. These provide some guidance to references that could be used to research particular issues.
