At the University of Winconsin – Madison she teaches undergraduate and graduate-level auditing and has been doing so for the last 15 years. At the undergraduate level, she uses a mix of lecture and case-based approaches. At the graduate level, she uses a heavily case-based approach. Sample syllabi are attached for you to gain a sense of the topical content, grading and organisation of these courses. Also attached is a case that Karla and a colleague developed based on a complex audit judgement task from real audit practise.
