Welcome TEFI Conference! On campus today until Friday.
The University of Guelph and the School of Hospitality, Food and Tourism Management welcome approximately 60 international delegates to the eighth Tourism Education Futures Initiative Conference (TEFI8) from June 4 to 7. This year’s theme, “Transformational Learning: Activism, empowerment and political agency in tourism education” is in keeping with TEFI’s mission to push boundaries, think creatively and inform and support tourism educators and students to transform the world for the better.
The conference features five notable speakers including College of Business and Economics Dean Julia Christensen Hughes.Hosted by Professor Marion Joppe and Associate Professor Statia Elliot from the School of Hospitality, Food and Tourism Management, the conference will aim to open up debate and break down traditional divides: research-practice, teacher-student, university-‘real world’ and business-community. Participants will learn by example, be future-oriented and leave inspired to become leaders of tomorrow’s tourism education programs or industry.
