Asynchronous Hospitality and Tourism Culture Exchange for Students in Hong Kong and Taiwan

This study attempts to explore students’ online utterances and interactions to determine the extent of collaborative learning for hospitality and tourism culture and to understand online collaborative characteristics among students from two universities in an asynchronous computer mediated communication (ACMC) environment. Students will first read articles online about hospitality culture and then discuss them on the discussion board. After finishing two discussions on different topics, each pair will be required to do an online project. Finally, students’ perceived value of the ACMC activities for language learning will be explored from three aspects: being aware of hospitality and tourism culture, learning more language for hospitality purposes, and increasing opportunities for interaction with other learners.
