IFRS Teaching Sessions


The IFRS Foundation education initiative is arranging a series of regional half day IFRS Teaching workshops to assist IFRS teachers to educate IFRS accountants more effectively. The main focus of these sessions is encouraging and supporting a Framework-based approach to teaching IFRSs.

The sessions train teachers to develop in students the ability to make the judgements that are necessary to apply principle-based accounting standards and to prepare students for lifelong learning. Most of these sessions are hosted jointly with international and regional academic accounting associations in advance of major accounting conferences.

Click here to view a +60 minute webcast presentation introducing Framework based teaching of principle-based standards. The presentation is followed by +30 minutes of the presenters answering questions from the audience.
