This course is about how we engage with leisure pursuits in small coastal communities, particularly those in the Arctic. How do these communities interact with tourism on social, economic and cultural levels? What is the individual tourist-local interaction like? How about the larger system? This course relies on understanding tourism at a basic storytelling level; and putting that into larger contexts.
Students will analyse the impact of tourism at their doorstep and create photo essays, go on field trips and produce their own digital story or short movie.
Prerequisites: Completed undergraduate studies, regardless of whether BA, BSc, BEd, or other equivalent study. It is important for applicants to have a good knowledge of English, as all teaching takes place in English.
