Prerequisites (for future units)
The course is dedicated to the study of territorial transformations due to the development of the tourism phenomenon and its effects on the natural, social and economic environment.
The course aims to provide basic knowledge of the tourism phenomenon through the geographical analysis of the territories seen according to the transformation due by tourism activities. Specific attention will be given to the analysis of recent manifestations of tourism demand in relation to changes in the behaviours and tastes of the tourist and in the ways of enjoying holidays.
Expected learning outcomes-.
Knowledge and understanding:
The teaching activity aims to provide knowledge of all those elements that constitute the essential motivating matter of tourism, namely the territory. In particular, the course aims to promote understanding of the results of anthropic activity on it (landscape) and on other material (built - artefacts and productions) and intangible forms (carried and cultural stratification).
Ability to apply knowledge and understanding:
The course aims to enable the analysis of territories and tourist destinations from the point of view of the possible activation and enhancement of present and potential natural and anthropogenic resources, also with reference to the demand, its segments and the ever-changing needs that the market manifests.
Autonomy of judgment:
In relation to the consistency of the knowledge acquired, an initial autonomy of judgment will be achieved, supported by the ability to systematize quantitative data and qualitative analyzes.
The course provides the basic elements to allow you to address issues related to the territory and tourist destinations with the methodological tools and the appropriate classification and terminological and communicative categories.
The acquired notions allow to form an initial ability to analyze in relation to the tourism issues of the territories and destinations related to the present situation and to the hypotheses of evolution.
The course consists of lectures, for a total of 36 hours (equal to 6 CFU), aimed at presenting and studying the main notions of the geography of tourism through the use of practical examples.
The materials used during the lessons will be uploaded to AulaWeb together with other materials (reports, links to databases, etc.) aimed at defining the quantitative aspects of the phenomena studied.
Occasionally, scholars or experts in the discipline (Italian and foreign) may also be invited to hold seminars to deepen specific aspects of the issues dealt with.
Attending students will also have the opportunity to carry out case studies through group work. The group work is divided into two phases: preparation of a written paper, oral presentation accompanied by slides. Timely information will be provided in class and through the teaching AulaWeb.

The oral exam will allow to evaluate:
- mastery and deepening of knowledge,
- the ability to use the skills developed.
Evaluation criteria are:
- the quality of the oral communication,
- the correct use of the appropriate vocabulary,
- the ability of critical analysis, even on possible cases discussed.
The students who carry out the group work will also be assessed on the quality of the paper as regards the content and formal aspects.
