EBE NSW PD Event - “Simulation as a Teaching Method in Business Studies” – 17 June 2015

Date: Wednesday 17 June 2015
Time: 4.25pm – 7.15pm
Venue: S P Jain School of Global Management, 5 Figtree Drive, Sydney Olympic Park, NSW
Cost: EBE NSW members: Free :: Non-members: $30.00

Economics and Business Educators NSW, in association with S P Jain School of Global Management, is offering Business Studies teachers an opportunity to explore simulation as  a teaching method in Business Studies.  A typical business makes hundreds of decisions on a daily basis. The teaching method of simulation can give students the skills and experience they need to make the right decisions. The Harvard Leadership Simulation focuses on how teams make complex decisions when critical information is distributed unevenly among members and when members have partially conflicting goals. Sophisticated computer software simulates the real world and enables participants to practice in a safe environment and learn from the mistakes made.

2015 CPA Plan Your Own Enterprise (PYOE) Competition

The CPA Australia Plan Your Own Enterprise competition encourages secondary school students to apply their business education to a real life scenario. Participants are asked to devise a creative enterprise idea and submit a business plan, explaining how their great idea could become a profitable business. For teachers, the competition is a valuable tool to enhance the business education curriculum. For students, it helps to build valuable work and life skills.

  CPA Australia partners with Business Educators Australasia to support teachers in developing the next generation of business leaders through the PYOE competition. Accounting is more than number crunching; the competition requires business insight, practical financial skills and a creative flair for problem solving. There are two divisions (individual student entries and group entries) with fantastic prizes up for grabs. All students receive a certificate for their job portfolios.

Entries from NSW students are due Wednesday 2 September 2015 (Term 3, Week 8). NSW winners will be recognised at the NSW PYOE awards ceremony. The national PYOE awards ceremony will be held on 14 October 2015 in Melbourne.
