HOSTED BY

SEMINAR MOVED ONLINE

Whilst we were very excited with the plan to take EDEN Doctoral Seminar on Producing and Evaluating Knowledge in Management Accounting, jointly with the Conference on New Directions to Lisbon in December, in the light of current world events we have decided that the best course of action for now is that the EDEN Seminar and  the New Directions Conference  should go VIRTUAL.

We are confident that the scientific value of the virtual format will remain very high, and whilst we look forward to adding back a face to face element to things in future years and hope to enjoy the hospitality of our colleagues in Lisbon, we aim to maintain a virtual element to things also in future.

EIASM has been working hard on the practicalities of a virtual delivery format, so please submit your applications to join the EDEN.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

This EDEN Seminar will focus on establishing the domain of management accounting as a topic for research.  As well as seeking to provide a grounding in the kinds of issues that typically comprise management accounting research a significant emphasis will be placed on developing an understanding the diversity of research approaches that may be undertaken in seeking to understand management accounting phenomena.  A key learning objective of the programme is to develop a sensitivity to issues of method and methodology that underpin the knowledge claims at stake in academic research in management accounting.

This course will consist of:

  • Pre-class readings
  • Lectures
  • Discussions
  • Participant presentations
  • Post-class assignment

This seminar is proposed jointly with the 12th Conference on New Directions in Management Accounting.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This seminar is aimed at doctoral students at an early stage of studying Management Accounting

COURSE CREDITS & ECTS

Each participant is expected to keep a free-form learning diary covering the entire process from preparing for the course beforehand through the end of the course.This EDEN course is deliberately timed to encourage active participation at the following conference, and you should actively take advantage of this opportunity to develop and test your understanding of the issues raised as they play out in the presentations and discussions you will take part in during the conference.  Your learning diary should include a section specifically relating to this experience also.  The final section of the learning diary should address you developing understanding of the assigned readings in the weeks following the course.  A condensed version of the learning diary (about 1,000 words) is expected to be sent to Nina Payen by 14th January 2021. The learning diary should be divided into four sections: Learning Before the course, Main learning points during the course, Learning during the conference, and After the course.

Passing the course is subject to preparing thoroughly for the course, attending all sessions in an active participation mode, active participation with both your fellow attendees and other conference participants during the conference, and delivering the learning diary on time. The assigned credit for this will be 4 ECTS.
