Redesigning the BSc. in tourism of HES-SO Valais-Wallis to address the future challenges of the touristic economy
Since 2018, the University of Applied Sciences HES-SO Valais Wallis has been working on the development of a new undergraduate degree in tourism with professional fields of competency as its main structuring principle. Its design relies on competency-based learning outcomes, an integrated assessment strategy, a digital portfolio of competencies, the embedment of soft skills throughout the program and the adoption of applied summative assessments in third-year modules.
