Abstract [en]

The traditional tutoring method of the academic thesis is controlled by a set of prearranged meetings between a single instructor and one or two students. In such a setting, dialogue and directives upon the subject matter is carried out, to a great extent, in isolation. In the traditional approach instructors appear as a "master" who knows what is required from the students to reach a typical academic thesis. The modernized manuals and writings that prescribe the tutoring activities added two instructive dimensions to the traditional approach, namely, psychological and institutional dimensions (see, e.g., Frenckner 1986; Hagman 1994; Cook 1980). The objective was to change the traditional tutoring method. The inclusion of these dimensions helped the pedagogical view of tutoring to be theoretically improved. However, observation of the current tutoring practices shows that inclusions of these instructive dimensions could not substantially support that tutoring in accounting be shifted from the traditional framework. The purpose of this study has been to reflect on the practice of group tutoring (PGT) designed to increase social interaction and reduce the problem of isolation embodied in the current approach of tutoring. A phenomenological view point is applied to approach, to observe, and to conceptualize social engagement in the practice of group tutoring in the field of accounting. Some of the findings are that the approach of group tutoring helps the increase of knowledge interaction, facilitates social relationship and dialogue among the students and teachers, improve the students' performance beyond their individual capabilities, and enhances students' and teachers' engagement in searching after practical accounting knowledge related to the basis of the community of professional accountants.
