    Children’s recreation as a comparative advantage tool for camping businesses

    No full text
    The purpose of this study is to present resort mini clubs as a valuable product and service that can help businesses in the outdoor sector of the hospitality industry to stand out from competitors. In this endeavor, data collection was performed from social media, camping websites and entertainment programs of 44 for-profit campsites located in the region Occitanie (Midi-Pyrénées and Languedoc-Roussillon, France). The study reveals that nature leisure tourism activities constitute a market opportunity for the camping industry. The contribution of this research is twofold: First, from a theoretical point of view, by suggesting resort mini clubs as a comparative advantage tool, this study is breaking up with the usual short term strategic approach in the industry. Beyond the topic of competitiveness in the hospitality industry, this study is also contributing to the empowerment of children, a group under-valued and under-researched in hospitality and tourism academic research. Second, from a practical point of view, the results of the study provide both a wake-up call, and a leveraging tool to practitioners who are sometimes overlooking the potential of some products and services already at their disposal

    Research knowledge translation in sensory integration-based therapy : exploring subjectivity of clinical expertise

    Get PDF
    Background. Clinical expertise is the mechanism through which practitioners implement other components of evidence-based practice (EBP). Within occupational therapy practice, intervention approaches that are both closely and loosely aligned with Ayres’ Theory of Sensory Integration are widespread, offering a unique opportunity to investigate the subjective nature of clinical expertise in EBP. Purpose. This qualitative study explored motivations to offer sensory integration-based interventions, and factors informing occupational therapists’ clinical decision making in relation to an arguably contentious evidence base. Method. Six post-graduate sensory integration trained UK occupational therapists participated in individual semi-structured interviews. Interviews were transcribed, member-checked and analyzed using thematic coding analysis. Findings. Despite sound understanding of theory and continuous efforts to develop clinical knowledge, non-traditional hierarchies of evidence notably inform clinical decisions. The clinical expertise required for integration of patient preferences, clinical state and circumstances, and research evidence is informed by pragmatic responses to facilitators and barriers across contexts, combined with unique profession-specific identity factors. Implications. While empirical healthcare research is ideally undertaken under controlled conditions, realities of clinical practice are rarely so clear cut. Study findings highlight important subjective factors that are central to real-world research knowledge translation and further understanding of the clinical expertise component of EBP

    Remembrance and ritual in English schools

    No full text
    This article explores war remembrance and ritual in English schools. The Remembrance in Schools project (2013–2020) investigated remembrance practices in schools in England through questionnaires, interviews and observations. Schools are unique as sites of remembrance because children constitute the majority of participants in rituals. School-based rituals of remembrance might potentially reproduce dominant discourses of war-normalisation that conflate military values and nationalism with morally ‘good’ values and an imagined community of the nation. They also provide a contested, ambivalent space in which ambiguities of practice and thinking may encourage the emergence, in small ways, of counter-narratives about war and its remembrance

    Understanding accessibility as lived experience : the case of walking and cycling in Porto Alegre, Brazil

    No full text
    Brazilian cities are typically unequal and car dominated, where poorer communities mainly rely on public transport, walking and cycling. Yet, understanding the experience of using these modes within specific contexts remains limited. In this paper, we illustrate how the ‘New Mobilities Paradigm’ can contribute to the ‘Accessibility Turn’ in urban research. Focusing on the low-income ‘Cruzeiro-Tronco’ neighbourhood in Porto Alegre, Brazil, we incorporate considerations of equity and social inclusion by applying Jensen’s ‘Staging Mobilities’ framework to examine how mobility is ‘staged from above’ by institutions and ‘staged from below’ by residents. We used biographical interviews and mobile methods to provide in-depth accounts of the lived experience of walking and cycling, showing how residents navigate the spaces and negotiate their mobility strategies in places deemed accessible by conventional ‘objective’ metrics. By applying Jensen’s framework as part of a mixed-methods research approach, we provide a more informative and context-specific account of the accessibility landscape, constructing knowledge with participants about the meanings of accessibility to support more inclusive policies and designs
