Accounting Ethics is now a required course to become a licensed Certified Public Accountant (“CPA”) in California. Teaching Accounting Ethics has been one of my greatest joys as an instructor as I have been able to “flip” the classroom (where the students are teaching each other during the classroom sessions) and I have learned more from my students in doing so. For example, learning about GlassDoor came from teaching Accounting Ethics as the former employee reviews were a significant part of their presentation. Here are some of my thoughts on teaching the class.
