Two Women Honored by the AICPA for Accounting Curriculum

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants has given awards to two women academics for their innovative teaching practices.

Karen Tabak, associate professor of accounting and economics at Maryville University in St. Louis, was honored with the 2011 George Krull/Grant Thornton Teaching Innovation Award for using art and drawing to enhance critical thinking skills of students in junior- and senior-level accounting courses.

Priscilla Wightman, chair of the department of business administration and accounting at Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York, received the Bea Sanders/AICPA Innovation in Teaching Award for her first-year seminar course, “$Chocolates$.” In this course, entry-level accounting students studied the financials of the world’s largest chocolate companies.
