Abstract

Engagement triggers are tools that capture students’ attention and direct it to a new topic or to the day’s lecture. By focusing on cartoons and short online videos, two examples of engagement triggers, the authors demonstrate how to use innovative and engaging online resources to enliven the forensic accounting and fraud investigation classroom. To achieve this objective, the authors present resources that are useful in the teaching of forensic accounting and fraud investigation. While cartoons often utilize humor and wit to convey a message or provide social critique, online videos illustrate fraud cases and their investigation, thereby demonstrating class concepts in practice.

Keywords: engagement triggers, forensic accounting
