This project funded through the Regional Hub Project fund will investigate the pedagogical properties of a number of commonly used case studies in law and accounting with a view to developing existing and new case studies that are well aligned with identifiable learning outcomes in the context of authentic (small and local) business that graduates in these disciplines are likely to work with.
The over-arching objective of this project was to improve accounting and finance academics’ teaching effectiveness that would enhance students’ learning outcomes.
