Abstract

This paper explores the potential of co-created and co-transformative learning to develop critical, ethical and reflective tourism practitioners capable of transforming tourism workplaces. It draws from a research-based learning project through which Year 3 students were involved in critical tourism research on part-time workers. Participation in the project enabled learners to become co-creators of knowledge and research collaborators. They actively engaged in debates on social justice, taking ownership of their learning and producing new knowledge.

Utilising inputs from students engaged in the project, this paper explores learner agency and empowerment; experiences of co-transformation and new knowledge co-production; and the tangible and intangible outcomes of participation. It also examines collaboration and power relations as well as the challenges of embedding critical tourism research into the curriculum.
