About Zhuoyi Zhao

Zhuoyi (Zoe) Zhao teaches management accounting, accounting information systems and financial accounting. Her role as an educator resembles a tour guide leading student tourists into areas of knowledge and their practical applications through active learning and collaborative research.

Her own study and teaching experiences in East Asia, the Middle East and North America have enhanced Zhao's understanding of different learning styles, inspired her when incorporating inclusivity in her instruction, and helped her gain friends from diverse cultural backgrounds. A supporter of whole person development, besides traditional professional skills, Zhao encourages and helps her students to advance along multiple dimensions during their pursuits inside and outside of the classroom. She is a member of professional associations including Canadian Academic Accounting Association (CAAA), American Accounting Association (AAA) and Institute of Management Accountants (IMA).

Scholarship and research interests

Puzzled by human behavior in adversity (e.g., boredom, failure and unfairness), Zhao draws on psychology, neuroscience
and economics theories and investigates how emerging technologies such as gamification may intrinsically motivate
individuals through adversity, and help them achieve desirable learning outcomes and work performance. Her recent
interests also include examining how compensation schemes, employment horizon and information transparency may
impact employee productivity. Zhao's research has received financial support from multiple internal and external sources,
including Lazaridis Institute Seed Grant, CAAA and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of
Canada.
