Abstract

With the rapid adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) around the world, accounting practitioners, educators, and students are in great need of IFRS instructional materials. This article provides a compilation and review of IFRS teaching resources based primarily on presentations made at a series of IFRS Teaching Workshops sponsored by the IFRS Foundation Teaching Initiative and the International Association for Accounting Education and Research (IAAER). With the purpose of helping those teaching IFRS, especially those with limited prior IFRS teaching experience, we provide detailed information so educators can easily access and use these resources. Several different IFRS teaching strategies and examples are provided to help educators consider how to use the suggested IFRS resources. In addition, while focusing on English language IFRS teaching materials, we provide some suggestions for useful materials available in other languages. While teaching, learning, and using IFRS takes effort, a large body of IFRS resources, including many available at no or minimal cost, is now available to facilitate the process.
