Abstract

This paper reports on how an educational intervention assisted in finding a place for learning technologies in accounting education. Guided by a design-based methodology, this paper firstly verifies the problems associated with accounting education within a developing country context. Educational design research (EDR) is then discussed as an emerging methodology within the field of accounting followed by an account of how it was used to derive design principles for a planned series of interventions and an implementation model that can address the perceived gap between accounting education and real-life accounting practice. Findings manifest in design principles that are presented for each stage of the EDR process that was followed in this inquiry.
