Paper Session Abstract
Closing the Gap between Knowledge and Practice

Attempts to close the gap between knowledge and practice are not new in tourism studies. But given that the modus operandi of the t-Forum is to unite tourism theory and practice, it is essential that scholars, policymakers, and practitioners find ways to work together in the creation of greater efficiencies and best practices that have ecological, sociocultural, and economic benefits. The purpose of this session is to develop or adapt knowledge-practice models or frameworks that can be applied to a range of different issues in tourism.
