This course offers an introduction to concepts and tools necessary for understanding emerging challenges in the aviation-environment-tourism nexus. A field excursion to Lady Elliott Island will be undertaken with the objective of allowing students develop an inter-disciplinary understanding of the aviation-environment-tourism relations in the Great Barrier Reef. The field-based learning will emphasise teamwork, as well as independent observational and enquiry skills using remote eco-resort as a context. Broadly, topics will include issues at the interface of aviation and transport logistics, reef and marine ecology, and tourism economics and marketing. Students will engage in reflective learning through follow-up lectures and assignments during semester. Students should be aware that additional costs associated with the field trip will be incurred including return airfare to Lady Elliott Island, accommodation and food.
