Plenary Panel Session

Focus: The current debate with industry, government and society about 21st century skilling has focused on the soft skills of collaboration, emotional intelligence, and entrepreneurship as well as the “hard” technical skills of business operations. As we move towards 2030, how do we modify the curriculum, the pedagogy, and the assurance of learning to ensure that graduates are equipped with those skills and competencies they need to find their place and prosper in an increasingly globally connected world?

Roundtable World Café Session / Panel Session 2

Focus: There are many pressures to ensure that the TH&E student learning experience is active and engaged. In this session, we explore how technologies can be deployed to enhance students’ domain-related knowledge as well as their acquisition of operational, managerial, and decision-making skills, and examine the role of MUSE (Multi-User Simulation Environment) in the classroom.

Chair:

Mr John Daly, Director of Quality Assurance, Swiss Education Group, Switzerland.

Panellists:

Dr Detlev RemyAssociate Professor, Singapore Institute of Technology, Singapore.

Roundtable World Café Session / Panel 3

Focus: It is widely recognised that education is undergoing a revolution. What is delivered, to whom, and how, are key concepts, but no less important is where delivery takes place. This panel will consider the importance of environment on the learning process. Changes in learning styles, advances in technology, learning in the workplace, online learning, and blended approaches may all be considered, but so too the future of training facilities, the limitations to ‘Real World Learning’ and whether there remains a need for traditional classrooms.

Chair:

Dr Craig Thompson, Head of School, Stenden Hotel Management School, NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands.

Roundtable World Café Session / Panel 4

Focus: The industry engagement activities of TH&E providers often start from the relationships associated with student work placements. In moving beyond this well-established model, what strategic initiatives are being pioneered to ensure that student educational experiences and pedagogies genuinely engage with leading trends across the sector?

Chair: 

Mr Anthony MitriDirector of Innovation, Industry and Employability at Torrens University, Australia.

Roundtable World Café Session / Panel 5

Focus: As the Tourism and Hospitality Professional becomes a more global citizen, dealing with global customers in the workplace and/or working in a borderless society, there is need for all stakeholders in the learning community – administrators, teachers, non-teaching personnel and students – to embrace cultural diversity, enculturation and socialisation. Sharing of best practices in strengthening learning across cultures through  research, classroom, travels, etc.
