Sofocleous, Stella (2005) The Practising Accountant and Technology. Working Paper. Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia.


This paper deals with an innovative business subject which has been introduced to fill in an important gap between theory and the practice of accounting for students who are planning on working in a public accounting practice and who wish to become members of a professional accounting organisation. The primary objectives of the subject are to provide these students with an overview and understanding of the role of the public accounting practitioner and to prepare them to manage important technological aspects encountered in public practice. An inclusive perspective is adopted in the teaching of this subject to combine elements of knowledge learned by students in other subjects of the accounting degree. This method enriches both the teaching and learning experience and delivers a high quality educational product.
