Student Projects on Sustainable Tourism: Using Web-Based Research to Increase Student Cross-Cultural and Foreign Language Competence
Students undertake research on a Francophone African country on the World Wide Web and apply their findings to develop a virtual project of sustainable tourism and a practical small business plan. Through these projects, students will improve their four language skills and gain deeper understanding of the target cultures and the challenges they face.
Attendees will receive handouts that describe projects that we have used successfully in our university courses.
