The IFRS Foundation has announced that webcasts will be held on 12 December 2012 to explain how to use the IFRS teaching material that the IFRS Foundation Education Initiative is developing to support those teaching IFRSs to develop their students’ ability to make the judgements and estimates that are necessary to apply IFRSs. This session will focus on non-financial assets.

The objective of the education initiative is to reinforce the IFRS Foundation’s goal of promoting the adoption and consistent application of a single set of high-quality international accounting standards, taking into account the special needs of small and medium-sized entities and emerging economies.  The wider education initiative encompasses deliverables such as the annual briefing document on IFRS for chief executives, audit committees and boards of directors, and education material on IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement.

The emphasis on framework based teaching is one of the three key projects included in the IFRS Education Initiative Plan 2012-2016 (link to IASB website).  Two one and a half hour webcast sessions focusing on teaching students non-financial assets will be held on 12 December 2012, at 9:30am and 3:30pm GMT.

More information and registration information is available on the IASB website.
