Carla L Wilkin, Monash University
Phillip A Collier, University of Melbourne


Abstract
Following calls for change to enhance accounting education, we describe and justify a ‘new pedagogy’ that centres on realistic business problems in the context of a simulated business and its authentic enterprise system. The aim is to prepare accounting students for a broader role in business decision making by providing them with relevant robust usable knowledge. Using design science methodology we describe three approaches to create artefacts that involve use of an enterprise system which support this proposal. Our contribution is an appraisal of these approaches. Included are examples of applying the pedagogy that demonstrates its feasibility.
