The impact of digital technologies on the development and evolution of the tourism and hospitality industry has been widely acknowledged as one of the main transformations in the last decade. Nevertheless, there has been limited focus on the part of the academic community in studying and evaluating the role new media technologies play as educational tools in the tourism and hospitality field. The aim of this track is to promote new theoretical and empirical research on the use of information and communication technologies for training activities in the hospitality and tourism sector. A more explicit recognition of the role digital technologies play in the training process within the industry could offer new and exciting directions for research and may help better understand the actual needs of the market in order to enhance qualifications within the tourism sector.
After the workshop, the best papers will be invited for submission to ELC Research Paper Series.
