Rethinking Hospitality Education: Industry-Academia Interface
Two Day National Level Online Faculty Development Program @WGSHA Manipal

The changing complexity of the hospitality business environment has necessitated the industry and the academia to develop close links to create the synergy. Failure to recognize each other’s role will reduce the import of interface between institutes and industry. It can potentially give rise to mismatch between demand and supply of quality manpower, which in turn can cause uneven balance in the job market.

There are a multitude of reasons why professional development plays a critical role in the ongoing growth of teachers. Faculty development programs (FDPs) have proven to be successful for improving teaching skills in higher education. Professional development promotes faculty responsibility for continuous, career-long growth based upon not only the trial and error of experience, but also theory, research, and professional collaboration with colleagues. Universities and industry, which for long have been operating in separate domains, are rapidly coming closer to each other for creating synergies.

The aim of organizing this FDP program is to equip faculty members of WGSHA with contemporary industry, teaching and research skills that help to bridge the gap between academia and industry. The emphasis is on the following areas:

  • Contemporary teaching skills
  • Design and development of learning resources
  • Research skill development
  • Industry best practices
  • Industry preparedness of students
  • Industry expectations of academicians / hospitality educators
