Best Practice in Online Course Design

In March 2020, when universities moved to emergency remote learning, the role of the educator suddenly shifted to that of instructional designer. However, many educators and schools chose to utilize technology like Zoom to continue teaching their traditional courses without considering appropriate online course design. The challenge now is to determine how we can re-engineer these courses to meet student expectations by incorporating 3rd-party technology and best practices into the course design.

The 4th industrial revolution and sustainability hospitality: Dangers and Opportunities

The pace of innovations in all field of sustainability increases (e.g. from energy efficiency to power generation, from waste management to production center for clean water and food), and the interconnectivity of new technologies may foster the needed shift in the hospitality industry towards addressing environmental and climate risks. + After a catastrophic year for the industry, many are looking towards technology to drive their processes, improving sustainability performance and boost economic prosperity looking forward. The 4th Industrial Revolution, it is argued, can help to deliver on the “systems change required to create clean, resource-secure and inclusive economies” (WEF, 2017) and on the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals” (UNCTAD, 2018). So what are some of the key technologies to tackle sustainability (All aspect of ESG) at a hotel? As the industry sales have dropped, what technologies can help tackle both costs and resource efficiency at the same time? What support is available to hotels wanting to embrace technology to tackle sustainability but do not have the means to do so during this economic downturn?

Simulations for Training and Development

Many front-line managers are not actively involved in technical processes such as Menu Engineering or Revenue Management, but they need to fully understand the outputs and effects of these systems.

The objective of this workshop is to introduce our Menu Engineering and Revenue Management apps, which can be used with your students to help them to understand the processes involved in the day-to-day running of these systems. This is a taster and will allow you to ask questions about the simulations.

Agile Course Development: To Convert Challenges into Advantages

In the midst of the corona pandemic, life for me as a teacher and the context of the restaurant industry drastically changed. The ten-week academic course Development of meal experiences for chefs and sommeliers in the third grade needed to address the new situation. In co-creation with the Swedish chef Paul Svensson, I designed a new curriculum. Our department, School of Hospitality, Culinary Arts and Meal Science at Örebro University, placed in a small rural campus called Grythyttan. In our design of the course, we therefore asked ourselves the question: – How can the village of Grythyttan act as a portal for a new society, a new world and what can it look like? The premise for the course was a design process with a divergent phase of weekly assignments focused on the history of the place, the ecological and social eco-system, the local primary producers, entrepreneurs and understanding of the circular economy. The course ended in a convergent process where the students presented a holistic prototype for Grythyttan 2030 linked to UN’s global goals for sustainable development. The students acquired new insights into how they could drive the process of changing a whole municipality in creating a sustainable food system.
