Engaging Tourism and Hospitality Management Students

Steve Parker has provided a slideshow presentation on covering an innovative project designed to actively engage Tourism and Hospitality students at the Illawarra Institute TAFE.

T&H students organising a Car Wash event management task at Wollongong campus used technology to record the event:
  • a mp3 recorder (ipod) to interview each other
  • a digital camera to take pictures and video.
You can click on each photo in the slideshow for comment and corresponding audio.

The project outcomes:
  • photos and audio can be used as part of assessment portfolio.
  • students themselves created a resource about event managment.
  • students loved using technology
  • students were comfortable with recording and interviewing each other
  • students helped each other clarify and discuss their own learning outcomes during the recording process
