Sustainable Tourism: Rethinking the future
Module 1: Tourism Studies and Development
In module 1, you will learn more about the cases from which we will depart in this course. Each case represents a unique setting in which tourism develops one way or another. As situational these cases appear, they may well connect with other practices that you are familiar with or have a special interest in. It is also possible to come up with your own case and find collaborators (other learners) who wish to join you in the exploration of this case. We very much welcome your creativity in outlining a case that is of interest to you!
If you are eager to move forward and engage in a dialogue on these cases, you must enrol as a verified learner. As a verified learner, you are given access to your own team environment but also to previous ideas developed in this course. You can work with other international team members on a case of your choice, share inspiring solutions to problems addressed, participate in (optional) fieldwork and engage in analyses corresponding to modules 2-4.
Module 2: Psychology of Tourism
In module 2, you will get an overview of the psychology of tourism and explain tourist experiences before, during and after holiday trips.
Module 3: Sociology of Tourism
In module 3, you will get an overview of the sociology of tourism, and learn how to explore the policy environment of any tourism case.
Module 4: Geography of Tourism
In module 4, you will get an overview of the geography of tourism, and learn how to explore the politics of place making and objects in tourism contexts.
Wrapping Up and Looking Forward
In module 5, we will invite you and your team members to present your group findings to all learners of this course. As such, you can possibly become inspired with the work of other learners in this course and gain final feedback to improve your final team vision.
Finally, verified learners can complete this course by filing a personal report in which you reflect on the team process and outcomes individually.
