Introduces students to the global politics of tourism development. Students explore historical and contemporary notions of power in the global development of tourism, and whether global citizenship can be pursued through tourism. This unit adopts a student-centred learning strategy prompting students to question taken-for-granted values and ideas about tourism, particularly in developing countries.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
