Okamoto, Y.ORCID: 0000-0001-7712-0260, Lee, D. and Price, A.ORCID: 0000-0002-5925-1133 (2015) A review of Australian tourism education studies: 2001-2014. In: CAUTHE 2015: Rising Tides and Sea Changes: Adaptation and Innovation in Tourism and Hospitality, 2 - 5 February 2015, Southern Cross University, Gold Coast


This study takes a systematic quantitative literature review of the academic literature that concerns practices and issues of tourism training and education in an Australian context. The study examines papers published from 2001 to 2014. The review focuses on the analysis of five aspects: 1. researcher location, 2. location of sample origin, 3. focus of study, 4. published year and 5. journal. Forty-one academic articles were collated from online databases. Preliminary findings suggest that there is a growing trend in this study field, attracting both Australian and international academics. Further studies are called to fill the gap in the area of Vocational Education and Training (VET), particularly given the emerging link between the VET and Higher Education sectors.
