Tourist, tour guide, traveller, travel agent? Reflections on leading and learning from international professional experiences

Angela Christina Fitzgerald

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


From tour guide to travel agent, tourist to traveller—what does conceptualizing who I am in these ways offer in terms of how I make sense of my experiences in leading and learning from the International Professional Experience program? To start with, it captures my imagination. At different times in the past two years, I can clearly envisage myself operating in each of these roles—as both border crosser and culture broker—and taking on the relevant identities to assist me in finding my way. So in using these four roles as a framework, this chapter explores who I am in the IPE program and what that has meant for my work in this space from these perspectives.
