International Learning Platform for Accountancy

ILPA Logo

 The project’s title is ‘International Learning Platform for Accountancy (ILPA)’. Aspects of Financial Reporting, Auditing of Financial Statements, Financial Statement Analysis and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Reporting were included. Competencies in these areas cannot be acquired effectively through a didactic concept that involves only traditional lectures and seminars. Graduates will mainly be employed by large institutions (e.g. large audit firms, corporate groups) that work in an international, complex and changing environment. A learning platform has been developed to address these needs. Hence, the project meets the current needs for accounting education. At the time of project application, no suitable learning concept in accountancy existed for HEIs.

To develop the learning platform in accountancy as the intellectual output, different activities were taken. The testing and evaluation phase within 3 ISPs was of critical relevance for development. Student feedback facilitated and focused improvements to the learning platform. Semi-annual project meetings took place in order to collaborate and refine materials and organise the ISPs. A project secretary, a dissemination appointee and a quality assurer were appointed to coordinate the activities and enhance the quality of the project partners’ work.

The final output of the project is a unique, innovative and comprehensive learning platform. The learning platform has already been integrated into the curricula of many accounting units. All generated teaching materials are available on the e-learning platform “OLAT” at the University of Innsbruck.
