Abstract

This thesis develops an adaptive learning resource (ALR) to be used in the financial accounting classroom in response to the challenge of teaching consolidated financial statements. One of the most important features of this thesis is its innovative approach to look at the problem of teaching challenging content from three perspectives: the student, threshold concepts and educational technology. The student voice is captured using think-aloud protocols. Threshold concepts are identified based on data collected from students, educators and industry practitioners. Finally, educational technology, in the form of an ALR, is used to support student mastery of threshold concepts.
