BEST Education Network (BESTEN) – Commitment to Sustainable Tourism, Education and Training


BEST Education Network (BESTEN) - Commitment to Sustainable Tourism, Education and Training

Full Description


The Network accomplishes this by holding annual 3-4 day THINK TANKS at various universities around the world. During these THINK TANKS, research is presented, sustainable tourism topics are addressed, a research agenda and curriculum modules for use in undergraduate education are developed. In the research session participants identify knowledge gaps in the field of sustainable tourism that need further investigation. The curriculum modules are designed for use in education around the world. They are developed by applying the Nominal Group Technique. Modules are published as book chapters and in electronic format and can be procured from Goodfellow Publishers. The BEST Education Network is organized and chaired by Dr. Dagmar Lund-Durlacher from MODUL University Vienna in Austria, and is comprised of professors from undergraduate and graduate departments. MODUL University Vienna also houses the BEST Education Network Secretariat. THINK TANKS rotate on an annual basis among universities around the globe. Interested educators and researchers are encouraged to contact Dr. Lund-Durlacher.
