References for Educators & Researchers

Welcome to the reference section. Some of these resources are available to anyone visiting the website. Others are available only to team members. All of these resources are intended to help make your job easier by quickly linking you to relevant resource people and valuable professional publications.

Together, we can help tourism professionals and community leaders take advantage of emerging opportunities, manage risks and grow the industry. Outsider assistance can have a substantial impact on new venture start-up, survival, and performance (Christman & Katrishen, 1994; Nahavandi & Chesteen, 1988; Robinson, 1982).

Enjoy the many benefits of joining the Tourism Team as an educator/researcher:

  1. sharing teaching resources such as syllabus, guest speaker information, teaching materials, etc.
  2. collaborating with other educators, researchers, and industry practitioners in various research projects, funding proposals, scholarly publications,
