Concept by: Marta Mandolini

Description

The course takes a contemporary approach to travel and discover 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, combining cognitive and emotional elements. In this way the learning process is made easier and the course content will be better retained by the participants.
