Abstract

Student Reflections on Good & Bad Teaching Among Undergraduate Hospitality & Tourism Management Students

This study aimed to describe student perceptions of good and bad teaching among hospitality and tourism students taking a large introductory class at a large Midwestern University. The study findings suggest that hospitality students describe good teaching as being delivered by those professors who care about the students, have a sense of humor, organized, know what they are talking about, and communicate what they know in a way that is understood by students and connected to the real world. Bad teaching was described by students as those who not only have a negative demeanor toward students but also deliver a lecture that is not fundamentally sound in addition to being boring, disorganized, and in a monotone manner. The results of this study should serve as best practices for those interested in enhancing the quality of instruction by doing those things students consider to be good teaching practices.
