The EAA is delighted to announce the recipient of the

2022 EAA Accounting Education Excellence Award:

 Professor Dr. Poh-Sun Seow, Singapore Management University

The Award seeks to highlight excellent practice in Accounting Education which addresses thought leadership in the field through innovation and cutting-edge practices in pedagogy, technology and content.

It is a great pleasure that the first awardee is Dr. Poh-Sun Seow. Dr. Pon-Sun Seow is an Associate Professor of Accounting (Education) and Associate Dean (Teaching and Curriculum) of the School of Accountancy at Singapore Management University. Prior to joining SMU, he was a lecturer at The University of Melbourne. Dr. Seow received his PhD in Accounting from The University of Melbourne and obtained his Masters of Business Administration and Bachelor of Accountancy with First Class Honors, both from Nanyang Technological University. His teaching and research interests are in accounting information systems, behavioral issues in accounting and accounting education.

Dr. Seow has done inspiring work in accounting education pedagogy. He is a passionate and creative educator who has contributed significantly to transforming accounting courses through teaching-enabled learning and experiential-learning pedagogy. He has co-developed two interactive mobile gaming apps: the Accounting Challenge (ACE)  and the Red Flags Accounting Fraud game apps. He has also created three online e-Learning tutorials; Resource-Event-Agent (REA), Business Processes, Revenue and Expenditure Cycles. Besides technology-enabled learning, Dr. Seow has also designed a student-generated video project to motivate students to use self-directed active learning. His work positively impacts student learning, and other faculties have rapidly adopted his practice innovations across the world. His work has been recognized extensively by the broader accounting education community, and he has a sustained track record of excellence along with international awards and scholarship outputs.

We are looking forward to congratulating Poh-Sun at the 2022 EAA Annual Congress in Bergen when the Accounting Education Excellence Award will be formally received.
