9 WEEK 1 Introduction, distribution of unit material and group formation The lecturers will introduce the course, distribute material and hold a discussion about the unit outline and the assessment. A brief introduction to international accounting and research methods will be provided. The main remaining activity will be to discuss the group assignment and talk about the formation of student work groups for the purposes of the assignment and presentation (Weeks 9-12). Students will collaborate within each group to produce the assignment. The group assignment (Weeks 9-12) is part of the method of continuous assessment used in this unit (worth 20% of overall assessment). For this assignment groups will have a strict maximum of five students. It is anticipated that most groups will have four to five members. A group with less than four members will require special permission of the lecturer and there would need to be a good reason. The allocation of topics for this assignment requires a formal notification of group membership and request for topic preferences, which will be done in week 5.
