Dear students,

Welcome to the Contemporary Issues in Travel Management Module!

This module will familiarise you with the tools, strategies and resources that we need to be able to understand and analyse the social, political, cultural, and economic context within which the travel industry operates.

At the beginning of each week, You will receive a message from me- your module leader Dr Milka Ivanova, that outlines any key information for the week. My email is m.ivanova@leedsbeckett.ac.uk and I will help you to navigate the complex and multidimensional current issues that impact and shape the travel industry. If you have any questions on the academic content each week, please don't hesitate to contact me. Our online tutor Jane Turner (jane.turner@leedsbeckett.ac.uk) will be available to help you with issues of academic writing and referencing as well as advising on the use of our virtual learning environments (MyBeckett).

In addition to that, we will be using Google communities with our own Community where we will be posting additional relevant and up to date information for the weekly topics as well as discussions. Engaging in the conversations there will make your learning experience much more satisfying! We also encourage you to post you own interesting information as well as start discussion on relevant to the module topics that interest you!

We will also give you to opportunities for live chat support on Skype on previously agreed days- I will be available on Skype on Fridays 10-11am- you can just pop in online to have a live chat if you need it, but we can schedule other days and times depending on your needs. To get in touch with me on Skype just enter my email.

This week is your Module Induction week. You will familiarise yourself with the aims and objectives of the module, the key readings, activities and resources available to you as well as with the assignments that you will need to complete to successfully finish the module.

I hope you will enjoy the semester and delve straight into the complex and exciting contemporary issues.

What do you think is the main current issue that will impact the travel industry in the next 5 years?
