BOOSTING EXCELLENCE IN HIGHER TOURISM EDUCATION. COOPERATION BETWEEN EDUCATORS AND INDUSTRY
Higher education in tourism, both in terms of content and form, is at the threshold of changes. In this situation, questions of how higher education offer meets the needs of the industry, and whether it is not too inert and theoretical, are topical. The aim of the conference is to create a platform for dialogue between educators and tourism professionals to improve the professionalism of future tourism industry employees, as quality in tourism education can only be achieved in close cooperation between involved parties. This event will highlight not only the co-operation of educators and industry, but also employment challenges in tourism, the knowledge and skills required by work in an increasingly technological era, as well as other topical issues.
The conference program consists of three parts.
