Orlando, FL (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
Fast Forward Academy was among the 135 accounting professors who recently attended the 2013 Southeast Region Meeting for the American Accounting Association in Nashville, TN. Held April 4–6, with the theme “We’re Playing Your Song—Harmonizing Two-Year and Four-Year Programs,” representatives from Fast Forward Academy presented its accounting education products (including its valuable CPA test books) as an exhibitor at the event.
Held at the Sheraton Nashville Downtown Hotel, the regional meeting consisted of ten different concurrent sessions and a poster session that focused on pedagogy, technology and innovation in accounting education. Among the numerous presentations and discussion sessions that took place over the three days were: Nanotechnology: How Can Your Firm Benefit? by Richard Banham and Lewis Laska (Tennessee State University), The Development of Hospital Accounting and Auditing in the USA by Dale L. Flesher and Annette K. Pridgen (University of Mississippi), Using Technology to Increase Student Engagement in Online and Face-To Face Classrooms by Markus Ahrens (Saint Louis Community College-Meramec), and An Analysis of Time Factors Related to Students Use of Online Homework Systems by Gail Hoover King and Songtao Mo (Purdue University Calumet).
Featured at the meeting was Dan Roam, best-selling author of The Back of the Napkin: Solving Problems and Selling Ideas with Pictures, which was named the #1 creativity and innovation book of the year by Fast Company, Business Week, and The Times of London. Roam presented multiple sessions including one entitled Seeing the Forest and the Trees: Clarifying Complex Accounting Concepts through Simple Pictures.
Fast Forward Academy’s VP of Sales, Peter Bullock, calls the event very successful. “We got a big turnout at our booth, with professors very excited to learn about our advantages like the FastBook (the CPA exam prep game), and the tremendous success our candidates had in EA and RTRP,” states Bullock. He continues, “They were very impressed and excited with how we use our technological advantage to deliver a custom learning experience and engage the students in active, fun environments.”
