Qualificació

Your course grade is based on the following:
1. Group Heritage Management Written Report:..... 60%
2. Individual Oral Examination.....................................40%
All students are expected to participate fully in both individual and group activities.
The course grade is based on the following scale:
10 (A) Excellent: For an excellent performance displaying a high level of command of all aspects of
the relevant material, with no weaknesses or only a few minor weaknesses
8.5 (B) Very good: For a very good performance displaying a high level of command of most aspects
of the relevant material, with some minor weaknesses
7 (C) Good: For a good performance displaying good command of the relevant material, but also
some weaknesses
6 (D) Fair: For a fair performance displaying some command of the relevant material, but also
some major weaknesses
5 (E) Adequate: For a performance meeting only the minimum requirements for acceptance
3.5 (Fx) Inadequate: For a performance, which does not meet the minimum requirements for
acceptance
0 - 2 (F) Poor: For a performance, which is unacceptable in all respects
Evaluators’ task is to identify weaknesses (whenever they exist) in the results of the written report,
in the oral presentation, in the discussion questions after the presentations, in the quality of
individual participation in preparatory activities, classroom and the field trip activities, and in the
quality of individual contributions to the group’s teamwork performance.

Observacions

The class consists of formal lectures. The purpose of these lectures is to present a critical discussion and assessment of the main concepts of the course. There are also tutorials where the students will raise issues of concern regarding the development of the group assignment after the field trip.
The teaching strategy is to present a critical overview of conceptual, empirical and case material with an emphasis on theories and findings that are based on research evidence and coherent argumentation. Students will develop and present a formal assessment of a real heritage tourism site’s reality, performance, as well as its managerial practices and the impacts of tourism on the site. The purpose of this assignment is to allow the student to extend and reinforce his/her understanding of the conceptual material of the course and to contribute to the student development in terms of scholarly inquiry, disciplinary knowledge, analytic and critical thinking, independent and reflective learning, information literacy, collaborative work, and effective communication.
Students will also work effectively in teams and prepare a formal written assignment in a clear and logical manner. Thus, this course aims not only to develop the students’ critical understanding of a range of relevant issues in the management of heritage sites but also to encourage the students to present their analyses in a logical and convincing manner and to clearly show how their conclusions are based on evidence acquired through research.
