.
This section focuses upon use of technology in accountancy education programs around the world. The 1997 revision of Chapter 4 is not yet complete. However, the 154 colleges did respond to survey. Results are described for both the U.S. Accountancy Education Programs and Non-U.S. Accountancy Education Programs. We are grateful to the publishing firm Richard D. Irwin, Inc. (Irwin) for funding this survey. Irwin did not constrain what we asked for in the survey. Nor did Irwin constrain any reporting of the results to the general public. All errors in reporting these results are our own. Chapter 4 only contains part of the material in the questionnaire. Remaining portions of the responses will be included in other chapters and appendices of this book.

Any college accountancy education programs that want their own data added to this document should contact Professor Robert E. Jensen at Trinity University by email at rjensen@trinity.edu or by fax at 210-736-8134.
