Kelley accounting professor to receive teaching innovation award
Dec 13, 2011
BLOOMINGTON, Ind.—Terry Campbell, clinical professor of accounting at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, has been named a recipient of the 2011 Mark Chain/Federation of Schools of Accountancy (FSA) Innovation in Graduate Teaching Award by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
Campbell, along with co-writers Paul M. Goldwater, University of Central Florida, and David E. Stout, Youngstown State University, will receive the award for their paper, Modeling Uncertainty in C-V-P Assignments: Going Beyond the Basics! at the 2012 annual meeting of the American Accounting Association in Washington, D.C. Their paper introduces the Monte Carlo simulation system, which allows professors and students to incorporate uncertainty in Excel decision and planning accounting models.
“Our team was quite pleased to win this national award from the AICPA/FSA as the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants represents the largest professional constituency of accountants in the world,” Campbell says. The award is one of only five given annually by the AICPA.
“Professor Campbell consistently seeks ways to push students out of their comfort zone to apply advanced analytical techniques to traditional accounting problems,” says Laureen Maines, chair of the Department of Accounting at the Kelley School of Business. “His award from the AICPA for the use of Monte Carlo simulation in cost-volume-profit analysis is a wonderful recognition of his many efforts in bringing cutting-edge material to Kelley students.”
The Mark Chain/FSA Innovation in Graduate Teaching Award recognizes exceptional graduate accounting course practices. Award recipients are selected from accepted submissions to the American Accounting Association's Effective Learning Strategies Forum. Award recipients present their work at the following year's Conference on Teaching and Learning in Accounting. For more information, visit the AICPA.
