About the eBook

A burgeoning tourism industry accompanied by a growing demand for employees has translated into an increasing need for tourism education to adequately prepare the workforce to serve the present and future needs of the industry. This unique Handbook provides an international perspective on contemporary issues and future directions in the field.

Contributions draw on a wide range of disciplinary perspectives and focus on the full spectrum of teaching and learning techniques in higher education, from undergraduate programme to the supervision of research students. Key topics include assurance of learning, development of skills, learning in the field, work-integrated learning, sustainability and critical studies, internationalization, technology-enabled learning, links between teaching and research, and graduate student supervision. Within these topics, attention is devoted to the discussion of curriculum, pedagogy, assessment, students, educators, and trends and issues.

An invaluable resource for understanding teaching and learning theory and practice in tourism, this Handbook will be an essential guide for tourism and hospitality educators, PhD students studying in the area of higher education, and educational designers and higher education researchers. It will inspire teaching and learning innovation by providing ideas, examples and future directions.
