OVERVIEW

The discipline represents a novelty in the pedagogical panorama of the national university educational offer. The originality consists in declining the intercultural didactic questions on the specific side of a sustainable tourist offer, able to enhance the places, and the cultural products both natural and artificial, with particular reference to the products of wine and food

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to illustrate the epistemological foundations of the discipline highlighting the links with the tourist practices and the reflections on the development of specific intercultural skills. The constructs of hospitality, receptivity and care are themed as founding nucleuses of the tourist experience as an educational-learning event, opening the way to original forms of design, communication and evaluation of the tourist offer able to achieve an effective welding between sustainability and differentiated needs of tourists.

Teaching methods

Lectures, discussions, videos, group work, case studies
