Experiential Learning in Barcelona: Sustainable Tourism and Travel Psychology in Practice

Description

Concept by Marta Mandolini

The course takes a contemporary approach to travel and the discovery of a new environment, introducing participants to Experiential Travel, as well as Environmental and Tourism Psychology through experiencing the city of Barcelona in a dynamic way. 

By bringing our attention, memory, perception, movement, and feelings to key aspects of the city, participants will learn how experiencing an environment in an unusual way can be a great tool to maintain their students’ attention and to stimulate their motivation and interest in learning. 

Each lesson includes a theoretical section (slides, case presentation, talk) and a practical section (group exercises, personal activities). 

Participants will be involved in an active learning process, focusing on personal experience and self-expression, and combining cognitive and emotional elements. In this way, the learning process is made easier and the course content is better retained by the participants.

The Application, the slide presentation, and the outdoor experience were all fantastic. The attention to detail in the application made it user-friendly and efficient. The slide presentation was visually appealing and effectively conveyed the key information. Additionally, the outdoor activities provided a refreshing and engaging way to learn.
