These programmes have undergone substantial adaptation in their delivery over the last Academic Year (2020-2021) due to COVID 19 which has presented many challenges specifically to the delivery of modules with an active learning approach has frequently formed the basis of delivery. Due to the nature of the travel and tourism industry a very active approach is deemed critical in the module delivery within related programmes. Therefore, the main aim of the reflective paper is to examine the use of active learning strategies on travel and tourism higher education programmes in Ireland, specifically Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT). The results of this study can be adapted on other travel and tourism programmes both in Ireland and abroad. Finally, this reflective paper which concentrates on the active learning strategies used in travel and tourism higher education programmes in LIT will be beneficial through contributing to the body of information on this topic, consequently paving the way for future research. Proposed areas of future research based on the discoveries of this paper are also highlighted.
