Creative Teaching Lab at the FIU Sponsored Hospitality Experience


The Creative Teaching Lab originated at EuroCHRIE Conference in Aalborg 2021 as the Lecturers Lounge—will focus on the professional development of teaching track faculty (teaching professors, lecturers, instructors). The workshop fills a crucial need as many departments have limited experience in how to mentor, evaluate, and promote new ways of teaching and learning suited for new generations of students.

The Creative Teaching Lab will offer sessions where teaching professors, lecturers and instructors can present, share and discuss different learning/teaching techniques and pedagogical perspectives to 21st century teaching in hospitality and tourism. The intention of the Creative Teaching Lab is to discuss, reflect and learn new perspectives on teaching and learning in hospitality/tourism education.
