Although the Accounting Education Change Commission's (AECC) Position Statement No. 1 provides numerous educational outcomes that accounting educators are to achieve, the accounting profession has not provided guidance on how to achieve those outcomes. The American Association of Higher Education developed seven principles for good practice in undergraduate education that provide guidance to accounting educators by focusing on student motivation and active learning. This article reviews experiential and cooperative learning methods and provides examples applying each method to accounting classes. Both methods provide a variety of classroom techniques that, in combination, fulfill the seven principles and achieve the AECC out-comes.
