Abstract: The objective of this article is to outline some useful practices for organizing a field trip for hospitality and tourism students. A conceptual framework is proposed to guide the discussion based on the results of studying three different groups of students who took part in course-related field trips. Detailed explanations covering the pretrip, on‐trip, and posttrip phases are provided of how to organize a field trip that enhances student learning. The active role of the teacher/educator throughout is the key to the success of any field trip. A summary of 14 useful practices for organizing a field trip that enhances learning is provided.
