Transforming Tourism as a Force for Good
Old Normal Vs New Normal
An Online-Merge-Offline Program
How the Program works
The workshop is based on Griffith course which consists of four modules, namely,
1. Tourism and the COVID-pandemic
2. Identifying new niches and market opportunities
3. Innovation and entrepreneurial thinking
4. Relationships and working with others to fast-track your recovery.
Each contains a number of videos and texts.
We will provide link for you to view all the materials at your own pace. Please note that online course materials are mainly in English.
In addition, we will supply you with some materials more relevant to Hong Kong to be viewed in conjunction with each module.
Participants can either choose to join all modules or any particular modules interested. We highly recommend participants to enrol all modules to get the best learning experience .
Team Learning Experience. All participants will be grouped into small teams of five persons, with a Learning Facilitator appointed for each team.
The Learning Facilitator’s role is to enable each team member to get the most from the assigned materials. There will be a team discussion after each module so that participants could exchange views, raise questions, share insights, etc. in a team environment.
Remarks: Only participants joining the all modules will be assigned in to teams.
Online Forum with the Chief Facilitator. There will be a two-hour online session after each module, to be moderated by the Chief Facilitator.
These sessions are designed to provide the participants with additional insights, exchange views and insights on the materials covered, and above all, explore the possibility and strategies of transforming tourism as a force for good.

What is an Online-Merge-Offline (OMO) program?
An OMO learning program is far more than a conventional online course.
It attempts to integrate both online and offline resources to make the learning more productive, interactive, and enjoyable.
An OMO program typically has three inter-related elements:
• Online materials (such as texts, videos, quizzes, etc.) for self-paced learning,
• Facilitated small group exchanges to ensure threshold learning
• Online or offline forums for in-depth presentations and discussions
The Chief Facilitator is the mastermind to design and facilitate the overall program. He will be assisted by several Learning Facilitators who facilitate learning and exchanges in small groups. All participants will be assigned to groups of five participants each, among which there will be mutual learning and support. This is to ensure that the participants will be able to learn in a supportive environment in order to maximize the benefits of the program.
