It is with pleasure that we share this latest issue of Hospitality Insights with our valued hospitality community. This issue has somewhat of an education focus. It provides short executive summaries of original research on diverse topics relating to hospitality education and knowledge. Topics covered include personal reflections by two AUT staff about a seconded teaching programme in Vietnam; how to flip academic classrooms to be hospitable and beneficial to the wider society; how to embed sustainability consciousness in hospitality and tourism tertiary education; hotel management students’ impressions of a hotel; how the meaning of the word ‘gourmandise’ has evolved through history; and questions around New Zealand’s hospitality to refugees.
The journal provides free, open access to the key implications of hospitality research for a wider readership along with opinion pieces of topical interest. We thus welcome your contributions to future editions of Hospitality Insights on the impact of COVID-19, as well as discussion of other issues currently testing the resilience and the sustainable future of the hospitality industry and communities.
He waka eke noa. We are all in this together.
