New Open Textbook: Introduction to Tourism and Hospitality in BC
We are happy to announce the release of a new open textbook.
This textbook is an introduction to the tourism and hospitality industry in British Columbia, and is written with a first year college and university audience in mind. It is a collaborative work with input from educators, industry leaders, employers, and past graduates of BC’s tourism and hospitality management programs. All chapters have been reviewed by experts in the field. Each chapter is organized thematically moving from a global, then national, and finally provincial context. Chapters contain “Spotlight On” boxes that highlight an organization, business, or other key component and “Take a Closer Look” features that encourage further reading on particular subjects. Key terms, exercises and case studies can be found at the end of each chapter.
Authors: Morgan Westcott, Geoffrey Bird, Peter Briscoe, Ray Freeman, Kelly Glazer, Keith Henry, Terry Hood, Heather Knowles, Micki McCartney, Donna Owens, Lynda Robinson, Eugene Thomlinson, Griff Tripp, Don Webster, Rebecca Wilson-Mah
