1 Course Outline Part I Programme Title : All Full-time Undergraduate Programmes Course Title : Conservation and Ecotourism Course code : COC1040 / CSL1013 Department : Science and Environmental Studies Credit Points : 3 Contact Hours : 39 Pre-requisite(s) : Nil Medium of Instruction: English Level : 1 Part II Synopsis The course provides a detailed description and analysis of ecotourism in the context of environmental conservation and sustainability. Its primary aim is to provide students with a basic understanding of the principles of ecological conservation as knowledge foundations. On top of the background knowledge, the conceptual frameworks in sustainable tourism and associated skills, for instances the issues on the conservation and management of natural heritage, are further developed. Through a review and discussion of the industrial operations of ecotourism and its potential threats to wildlife, the positive values and attitude towards the nature and biodiversity are aimed to be developed. The potential development of ecotourism in Hong Kong will be examined from the multiple aspects of meeting recreation demand, promoting the environmental sustainability and generating economic benefits. The roles of public and private sectors in planning and developing ecotourism are also discussed with other comparable systems. Authentic scenarios are provided to the students in learning the issues and acquiring the skills through the Problem-Based Learning approach. As a final project, students are expected to plan and conduct an ecotour for various visitors in a given natural trail of the local environment. Field visits will be scheduled for students to consolidate the knowledge and practise the skills acquired in the classroom. Case studies will be examined and reported by the students in group presentation to identify specific socio-economic and cultural costs and benefits associated with an ecotour. The practical experience gained in the course shall strengthen students ability in organizing conservation-related field visit in various future careers for example becoming a teacher. Course Intended Learning Outcomes (CILO s ) At the end of the course, the learners will be able to: CILO 1 describe the principles of environmental conservation and ecotourism; CILO 2 apply the key concepts of environmental conservation to the healthy development of ecotourism; CILO 3 critically analyze the benefits and challenges of ecotourism reviewed in the case study of existing ecotour; CILO 4 acquire knowledge and experience for planning, managing and guiding ecotours; 1
