There has been little research in the domain of accounting education on the use of teaching resources, though some journals do provide case studies and teaching notes for educators. This chapter presents a review of current knowledge, key issues, and pertinent debates in the arena of resource use in education provided for both accounting specialist and non-specialist students, and is relevant to undergraduate, postgraduate and, to some lesser extent, professional training. General, and then accounting-specific, discussions of teaching resources and their role in learning are provided, in the context of conceptions of teaching. In addition, the chapter provides the results of the first systematic investigation in 20 years into the use of different teaching and assessment resources by U.K. and Irish accounting academics, and an insight into those educators’ conceptions of teaching through building on prior studies in economics and finance.
