Teaching cultural tourism – Some comments from the classroom

22nd May 2014

Laurajane Smith, Anne Clarke and Alison Allcock

Introduction*

This paper offers some comments about the relationship between cultural heritage management and the tourism industry based on our experiences of teaching a subject called ‘Environmental and Cultural Tourism’ at Charles Sturt University (CSU). This is a third-year subject offered to students taking a tourism major as part of a Bachelor of Business degree course. Two authors (LS and AC) are archaeologists who have taught archaeology and cultural resource management to applied science students at CSU, and one (AA) has taught recreation and tourism at the same institution. All three authors have been involved with other staff at CSU in developing and teaching this subject over the last two years.

*Note that an abstract was not included with this paper, and so the introductory paragraph has been included here instead of the abstract.
