HOSPITALITY AND TOURISM

Forging On-Line, International Partnerships: UW-Stout's New Global Hospitality Management Concentration
Joseph W. Holland, JD, Christine J. Clements, PhD, and James J. Buergermeister, PhD
Department of Hospitality and Tourism, UW-Stout

The Department of Hospitality and Tourism at UW-Stout has recently implemented a new concentration in global hospitality management within the existing master's degree program in hospitality and tourism management. Creating the new concentration presented many challenges in curriculum design and delivery. The program is offered entirely on-line to students who, in many cases, would not be able to pursue their graduate studies otherwise. It has been designed in an active learning format for persons who are presently working in the hospitality or tourism industries. Moreover, it is a global experience based on a curriculum that has been developed by international educational partners. The courses are team taught by faculty from the partner institutions, allowing students and faculty to experience the cultural richness collaboration between international institutions provides.

The Teaching with Technology Today project consists of a web-based NEWSLETTER and WISLRNTEC, a companion listserv where members discuss technology, pedagogy, and student learning. TTT was instigated by the UW Learning Technology Development Council; it receives significant support from UW-Extension's Division of Continuing Education.
