RRU/ITESO Project Collaboration: Capstone Projects that Make a Difference

Through the Outbound Student Mobility Pilot Program, Royal Roads University established a Collaborative Online Intercultural/International Learning (COIL) opportunity with students from ITESO University in Guadalajara, Mexico. In Stage 1 of the project, students worked in teams of Canadian and Mexican tourism students to examine the impacts of COVID-19. They explored creative solutions for companies to pivot during the pandemic. Stage 2 of the project involves collaborating on a field project near Guadalajara, on the creation of a regional tourism development plan. Future students’ progress through Stages 1 and 2 in their final 2 years of their undergraduate degree.
