Frances Miley PhD MEc LLB BComm GCULT FCPA DELF DALF (SL University of Sussex) is an Australian accounting academic who says she came to the UK a year ago for the mild British weather. Before coming to the UK, she was the head of the School of Business at the military campus of a research-intensive university, the University of New South Wales. She has taught at universities in Thailand and Uzbekistan, taught offshore in Hong Kong, and consulted extensively throughout South-East Asia. She occasionally teaches at SKEMA Business School in France for the fun of teaching accounting in French and she is an evaluator of Business degrees for the Government of Malta.
Frances is long-time member of the Accounting Education SIG of BAFA’s equivalent ‘down under’, AFAANZ, and a recent member of BAFA’s Accounting Education SIG. Frances is on the editorial boards of a number of education and accounting journals. She says research is addictive and fun, and that her main teaching talent is the ability to demolish a classroom and create chaos in a matter of moments. Her husband will tell you that chaos is carefully orchestrated. Frances’ view is that if teachers do not find teaching fun, why would they expect their students to enjoy learning? Prior to academia, she worked for a Big 4 accounting firm in Sydney and in the Australian Government. She has always been active in her professional accounting body, CPA Australia, because she believes the link between academia and the accounting profession is vital. Her session’s title comes from the book ‘The Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ because she will be crossing the galaxy of accounting education, with a session that moves at the speed of light from teaching Chinese students and fighting the essay mills, to accounting speed dating and campaigning for the undervalued importance of no-tech ideas in teaching accounting, such as LEGO, Origami and the use of rock music. This session is an invitation to question whether the main problem with accounting education is accounting educators, to think about what accounting education should look like in the future and to ask if the future doesn’t start today, then when does it start? Frances says her session should come with a warning and possibly an apology in advance since her session will show you why Australians are not known worldwide for their diplomatic skills. She apologises in advance.
Sessions will be interactive and engage participants with their own contexts and priorities.
