  1. 1. The Future of Tourism Education Dr. Alessandro Inversini School of Tourism Bournemouth University Dr. Alessandro Inversini @beanbol
  2. 2. “The  intellect  engages  us  in  the  pursuit  of  Truth.   The  passions  impel  us  to  ac5on.”       (M.Tullius  Cicero,  De  Officiis)

  4. 4. In  2020,  higher  educa5on  will  not  be  much  different  from  the  way  it   is  today.  While  people  will  be  accessing  more  resources  in  classrooms   through  the  use  of  large  screens,  teleconferencing,  and  personal   wireless  smart  devices,  most  universi5es  will  mostly  require  in-­‐ person,  on-­‐campus  aBendance  of  students  most  of  the  5me  at   courses  featuring  a  lot  of  tradi9onal  lectures.  Most  universi5es'   assessment  of  learning  and  their  requirements  for  gradua5on  will  be   about  the  same  as  they  are  now.     SCENARIO  1     Pew  Research  center,  2012
  5. 5. By  2020,  higher  educa5on  will  be  quite  different  from  the  way  it  is   today.  There  will  be  mass  adop5on  of  teleconferencing  and  distance   learning  to  leverage  expert  resources.  Significant  numbers  of   learning  ac5vi5es  will  move  to  individualized,  just-­‐in-­‐9me  learning   approaches.  There  will  be  a  transi5on  to  "hybrid"  classes  that   combine  online  learning  components  with  less-­‐frequent  on-­‐campus,   in-­‐person  class  mee9ngs.  Most  universi5es'  assessment  of  learning   will  take  into  account  more  individually-­‐oriented  outcomes  and   capaci5es  that  are  relevant  to  subject  mastery.     Requirements  for  gradua5on  will  be     significantly  shiRed  to  customized  outcomes.     SCENARIO  2     Pew  Research  center,  2012
