Abstract

Rural areas have often suffered a loss of intellectual capital as a result of population change and economic restructuring. This article indicates one response to this problem through a discussion of the role that university departments may play in providing injections of intellectual capital through field-based courses, and the communication of the results of such courses to the community being studied. This article details a final year undergraduate Bachelor of Tourism paper, Destination Analysis, that was developed in order to provide an integrated capstone course as well as expose students to the realities of destination research and producing research outputs for industry and community stakeholders. More generally, the paper was designed to develop mutual tourism knowledge in rural locations between students, staff and the community within which such studies occur.
