For Dr. Scarpin, teaching is more than what he does for a living; it is part of his life, mission, and passion. While conducting research is essential for building a great academic career; he believes that the interaction between scholars and students is an important opportunity to build knowledge together. Therefore, he uses a combination of well-prepared lectures and hands-on activities, for example, financial statements from public companies (10-K and EDGAR), newspapers, case studies, ethical dilemmas assignments, big data projects, etc.
He is the creator of the Accounting Hub by Dr. Scarpin YouTube channel. It is a free YouTube channel with more than two hundred videos recorded on 13 playlists focused on short Accounting lectures and how to combine Accounting and Excel. The Excel files are free, and the link to download is in the video description. The audience is from more than 35 countries all over the world.
