This study reports on the use of short, informal writing activities as a means to improve learning in Accounting Information Systems (AIS) courses. Students in a junior-level AIS course completed 10 short writing activities in class during one academic quarter. Student evaluations of the activities indicate that they found the assignments useful in a variety of ways, but especially in helping them integrate concepts, recognize important points, and retain knowledge learned in the course.
