ASSESSMENT TASK 1: DESCRIPTION
Presentations will be held in weeks 4 and 5.
Students will work in groups to investigate and analyse the tourism system of a specific
destination region they are familiar with, or interested in. The analysis should identify the key
stakeholders, major elements and relationships between stakeholders and elements as well
as suggesting the most significant forces on the system and the current responses from the
public and private sectors. The aim is to use a tourism systems analysis to identify issues
and challenges facing the destination. Students should prepare a 3 page summary handout
of their analysis (to be made available for other students before the presentation session) and
then give a presentation on the issues and challenges facing the destination and some ideas
on options for dealing with these issues.
NOTE: All students should attend all presentations and read the 2 page summaries that will
be provided before each presentation session so that they are prepared to be involved in
class discussions. Exam questions will be developed from the presentations and the
discussions that accompany them. This is also an opportunity for students to present
destinations they are connected to and to develop ideas about better destination
management from the class discussions.
Working in Teams: The ability to â€œlead, manage and contribute effectively to teamsâ€ is a key
JCU Graduate skill and an important skill sought by employers. Working in teams, under
proper conditions, encourages peer learning and peer support. Sometimes members of a
team will not contribute equally to the task, resulting in some students carrying the full load or
the team effort.
Should you have conflict in your team it is important to advise the lecturer as soon as
possible. The lecturer will retain the right (after hearing claims from students) to decide when
a group should be disbanded. In exceptional circumstances, individual assessment options
are available to students only after a concerted effort has been made to work with other team
