Chapter 39: Innovation and change in tourism education with special focus on India
The present chapter provides some intensely personal reflections about the past, present and future of tourism higher education, with special focus on India. The author highlights forces of continuity and change in the historical development of tourism education. In addition to more trivial issues such as curriculum design, instruction and campus placements, deeper currents that manipulate the system such as authority and dogma are touched upon. Special mention is accorded to the historical factors that resulted in the current state of institution development and the future outlook. While no grand design is offered as a panacea for the largely unpleasant state of affairs, it is hoped that the discussion contained here will help clarify the issues better, which is the first major step in identifying meaningful solutions.
