Teaching Consortium

Applications are now being accepted for the 2014 ICHRIE Teaching Consortium. The Consortium will convene on the first day of the ICHRIE Annual Conference, Wednesday, 30 July 2014.

Teaching is a profession and a career whose ultimate goal is SERVICE—service to the industry and the society. We, as teachers of hospitality and tourism, fulfill this service obligation by preparing our students to be responsible, productive and engaged citizens. The quality of this service is directly proportional to the quality of the teacher in terms of the teacher’s knowledge and expertise. Teachers must constantly and consistently create, acquire and share new knowledge, skills, experiences and wisdom to sustain this quality. The teaching consortium provides these excellent and unique opportunities.

The Teaching Consortium in the Career Academy moderated by Dr. Nelson Barber and Dr. Chris Taylor will feature the following topics presented and facilitated by some of the most experienced and accomplished hospitality and tourism teachers.

  • Service Learning: How can it be useful?
  • What is Service-Learning?
  • What learning objectives can service-learning address?
  • What should I consider when designing and teaching a service-learning course?
  • The Effects of Service Learning
  • A panel discussion to sum up all the above topics.

Research Consortium

Applications are now being accepted for the 2014 ICHRIE Research Consortium. The Consortium will convene on the first day of the ICHRIE Annual Conference, Wednesday, 30 July 2014.

Research and teaching are the two sides of the same coin. Research compliments and enhances the quality of teaching by testing and creating new knowledge and paradigms. Research also helps the industry with solutions to challenges and translating theories into practice. Hence research is a calling, a passion, a profession whose ultimate goal is also to provide service. The Research consortium at the career academy provides active and potential researchers with opportunities to enhance their research agendas and provides key guidance in tackling the many challenges of conducting research.

The Research Consortium at the Career Academy, moderated by Dr. Zvi Schwartz and Dr. Manisha Singal, will feature the following topics presented by some of the most prolific and accomplished researchers in hospitality and tourism education.

  • Frontiers in Revenue Management—Research
  • Research in Hospitality Finance—Theory Building and Theory Testing
  • Research Quality Measures—Using Secondary Data Sources in Hospitality Research (STR's SHARE center and M3 Center for Hospitality and Innovation data)
  • Early stage research feedback—roundtable discussion
  • Research presentation by a leading HTM researcher(s)

Leadership Academy

The leadership consortium will examine the many facets of leadership. This includes not only leadership of an academic unit but leadership in other organizations such as professional associations, advisory boards, and industry. Designed for current leaders or individuals who want to expand their administrative career options, this track will provide information about leadership qualities; styles of leadership; and leadership challenges such as creating a vision, developing curriculum, raising funds, budgeting, hiring and motivating staff, evaluating professionals, coordinating advisory groups, and using various models of communication and consultation.

*Please note: Registration for the 2014 Leadership Academy will be taken on an individual basis. Please email Amie at skohli@chrie.org with expressions of interest.

~ Leadership is action not a position.

As Dr. Tom Maier, a leadership session presenter so eloquently states, “Leadership and community engagement go hand in hand in today’s hospitality industry and education. Volunteerism and community outreach lends itself to greater insight and enlightenment for today’s hospitality leaders and the communities they serve. More importantly, community engagement sets forth to find new ways to challenge organizations to invest time and effort into external engagement. Community engagement at the point of exclusion brings forward the conversation as to ‘inclusivity’ in terms of economic, societal and cultural contexts”.

The Leadership Consortium, moderated by Dr. Bob O’Halloran, Dr. Cynthia Deale and Mrs. Susan Fournier, has some of the best known academic leaders presenting the following topics:

Leadership positions In Hospitality Education

  • Service Leadership and Community Engagement in Practice
  • Leadership Lessons in Service and Scholarship.
