 This discussion board is slightly different than the others. The purpose of this discussion board is for you to provide feedback on the relevance and content of the discussion boards used in this class. Specifically:
    1. What content was most relevant to you, and why?
    2. What content was least relevant to you, and why?
    3. What new topics would benefit future students in this class?
    4. Were the discussion boards a good vehicle for faith integration in an accounting class? If no, what would you suggest? 

Another discussion just for reference

 Access the AICPA’s Code of Professional Conduct. Read the sections on integrity (0.300.040), Objectivity and Independence (0.300.050) and Due Care (0.300.060). Discuss the following:
    1. What is your general impression of the reading? How does this fit with your own perceptions? 
    2. Comment on the definition of integrity (0.0300.040.04). Is this consistent with a Christian ethical perspective?
    3. Discuss any personal or professional situation in which integrity has been and issue.

1. What content was most relevant to you, and why?

From all the discussions that we did so far, the one that I was most interested in was the ones about the Fraud Triangle, especially the one from last week since we used what we learnt about it and applied in a realistic situation, which made it easier for all of us to engage and provide strong arguments.

    2. What content was least relevant to you, and why?

It’s not that it was the least relevant, totally the opposite, but the ones that I enjoyed the least to do were the first discussions that focused on the AICPA codes. I believe that they are important to reinforce ethic in our lives plus, our jobs. However, I feel like since there were rules and specific statements about the content, we were, somehow, limited to that only in comparison to last week’s thread where I think that we were able to see many different perspectives about the same subject.

    3. What new topics would benefit future students in this class?

I do not have any complaints about the topics that were addressed on this class, I think that the professor could maintain this system the way it is.

  4. Were the discussion boards a good vehicle for faith integration in an accounting class? If no, what would you suggest?

Yes, on each discussion there was always a question about our faith and how could we relate the contents with religion.

1: what content was most relevent to you, and why?
I felt like most all of the discussion topics were fairly irrelevent. It's not that something like code of conduct or ethics don't matter, it's just that in the scope of an accounting class, these discussion boards kind of felt like busy work to me.

2: What content was least relevent to you and why?
I felt like especially the couple sections on the Fraud Triangle didn't really matter. Most all Montreat students have to take Ethics, and that is something that is covered in there, although under a different name. I just felt like it could have been time better used in something else. 

3: What new topics would benefit future students in this class?
I suppose you could talk about specific examples of ethical questions and decision making as it relates to the accounting class, or something like that, rather than making the questions based from a student point of view. That could help with learning the material by incorporating some information about that week's chapter into the discussion board, so students have to read a little bit before they post. 

4: Were the discussion boards a good vehicle for faith integration in an accounting class? 
In short, no. As stated above, they felt like busy work, and like I was just doing it to get the grade done. I saw no conversations in the discussion board comments, and I don't remember reading any replies on my own. It is hard to provide faith integration into a class that is online, especially if it is something like accounting, where it doesn't really deal with people. The best way I can see it happening would be discussion on ethical dilemmas that may apply to accounting.
