Hospitality and Tourism
Principles of Hospitality and Tourism provides an overview of the hospitality and tourism industry and serves as the foundation for the core courses offered by the NAF Academy of Hospitality and Tourism.
Learners take a brief look at the industry's history to understand the forces that have shaped it and the degree to which it has changed in the past century. They learn about traveler motivation and consumer needs and how these factors affect current lodging, transportation, food and beverage, and entertainment sectors. Learners consider the economic and environmental impacts of the industry on the world today and receive exposure to a wide array of domestic and international travel. Finally, they learn the basics of selling and marketing in tourism.
PLANNING TOOLS provides essential information to guide course implementation, including scope and sequence, detailed lesson plans, semester planning outline, course updates, and project overview. Several courses offer free online resources with hyperlinked URLs to enhance blended, synchronous, and asynchronous learning. The scope and sequence guide the resource selections to ensure the content aligns with lesson topics. The online resource collection includes course outlines, modules, lesson plans, videos, projects, and articles.
FOR LEARNERS: Did you know that in 2030, 85% of the jobs are not in existence yet? So, how can what you are learning in school today possibly prepare you for an unknowable future?
The answer is simple! You do not stop learning just because you graduated from high school. You must embrace the concept of life-long learning to thrive in a highly tech-enabled and information-driven future. Your skillsets are less about what a teacher “poured” into your head and more about exploring issues and topics about which you are passionate. In the future, employers will not be as interested in your grade point average as compared to the initiative you took to extend your knowledge.
