How Social Media Impacts Travel

No matter where people are traveling, they know that doing a little research ahead of time can make or break their vacation.

think Immersion Education as it relates to Hospitality…

What does it mean… “in traditional educational instituitons that do not apply the immersion methodology, it is just learning theories in classes and that is it. however in the application of this methodology, the classroom is expanded in the sense that it “throws” the students directly into the industry itself whereby they apply the knowledge that they learn to polish up their skills. in other words it is the application of theories in the practical world as hospitality is not a “book” industry it is a “practical” industry. beyond books it is also the exposure to the environment as well as it is vital that the environment reflects what the students are learning. imagine students learning medicine who do all thier learning in a classroom but when they go into an operating theatre, they are unable to apply the knowledge they have learned .. same concept. i hope this answers your query in the immersion methodology.”
