Innovation in Teaching Tourism
Training courses 2016–2017

The course Innovation in Tourism is aimed at promoting innovation in tourism education. The participants will get an overview of new trends and innovations in the field of tourism, as well as an overview of European policies in this field and will learn how to teach all these notions in an efficient way, in order to create a generation of great tourism entrepreneurs. Our course will guide you from innovations theory, through case study analyses, to widening and enhancing of your own innovative skills. The main benefit lies in a development of creative thinking, widening horizons and finding specific and original ways to innovations. Furthermore, as the course will gather participants from different countries who are working in the field of tourism, you will have a chance to learn about the situation in other countries, find partners for your project ideas and join projects developed by other course participants. We will adapt the course basing on the participants’ interests, but it is mainly addressed to teachers in tourism schools and tourism professionals.
