Dear Tourism in Pacific Asia students,
Under “Assessment Details” on the BB site, you can find the Assessment 1 Marking Guide, which has the % breakdown for each of the marking criteria, and the Assessment 1 Turnitin dropbox/link where you can submit drafts up until the Assessment 1 due date (Week 8, 11 PM on Monday, 17 April 2016).

Under “Lectures” on the BB site, you can find slides and audio from the Library Workshop on finding sources for assessments. I am not able to upload a past student assessment to the BB site, but I have also uploaded a Power Point presentation and accompanying audio in which I go through and explain the outline and contents of a past Assessment 1. I hope these are helpful to you.

One student asked if he could select a city in Australia for Assessment 1. As the Study Guide notes, “For the purpose of this unit we will not be examining Australia, though it must be noted that this country plays an enormous role in tourism of the Pacific Asia region, both as a major tourist generator and as a popular tourist destination for Asian and Pacific visitors.” So for Assessment 1 you cannot select a destination in Australia or Australia as a destination, but instead should select another destination in the Pacific Asia region as defined in Topic 1.
Kind regards,
Deborah

Research and critically analyse tourism development in this destination and report on the following:

briefly describe the physical and human geography
critically analyse the pattern of tourism flows to present day
identify three to four (3–4) factors that have influenced tourism development on this destination – these could include issues such as available infrastructure; appealing natural attractions; political stability; health & safety; natural disasters, poverty, etc.
Finally, discuss two (2) implications for the future of tourism at this destination – these could include challenges such as climate change and rising sea levels, continued political unrest, issue of peak oil and/or positive factors such as sustainable tourism practices or opening of new tourism markets.
