Hospitality students expand their horizons with Tour for Muda event 2023

SEGi College Penang’s School of Hospitality and Tourism has provided an opportunity for students to learn in new environments through the Tour for Muda Event 2023. This event is part of the class activity and an effective teaching strategy that facilitates learning outside the classroom. The Tour for Muda is a version of the Heritage Tour inspired by the previous Heritage Tour that is done every semester specifically for the Introduction to Hospitality Industry class. 

The Tour for Muda provides an opportunity for students to receive various experiences that are not possible in a classroom setting. It makes learning more enjoyable for the students and expands classroom instruction with real-world experiences, connecting students to their communities in ways that capture their attention and enrich their learning experience. 

The main purpose of this trip is to illuminate and expand classroom instruction with real-world experiences and connect students to their communities in ways that capture students’ attention and enrich their learning experience. It helps in the application of ideas, theories, and knowledge that are taught in the classroom to ensure the competence of the students. 

The Tour for Muda includes an introduction to popular heritage attractions around Georgetown, such as Logan Memorial, Esplanade (Padang Kota Lama), St. George’s Anglican Church, Goddess of Mercy Temple Penang, Sri Mahamariamman Temple, Kapitan Keling Mosque, Leong San Tong Khoo Kongsi, and experiencing the cultural cuisine of Banana Leaf dish at Sri Anandha Bahwan. 

This tour is fun, informational, and useful for the students from many aspects. The real-life experience and learning during the trip help the students find solutions to real-life problems and makes them innovative. Through this tour, the students may gain exposure to create more appreciation and awareness of the value of all cultural heritage aspects in Penang.
