The author has developed and delivered Sustainable Tourism (S.T.) related courses at Institutions of Higher Education in Paris, London, Helsinki, and Parnu, Estonia over the last 10 years. The focus of the presentation would be the S.T. content and associated student research conducted in the delivery of the course over a 5 year period (2005 – 2010) at Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne (EHL), Switzerland.

During the above time period, the S.T. course was required of all undergraduate students and delivered during their 5th of a 6 semester Bachelor of Science degree program. Although the S.T. course was listed as ''Eco-tourism', the content was S.T. and considered, as in all Schools in which the author was involved, student career aspirations and curriculum circumstances unique in each Institution. 

As to be expected, the course content included some variations in major topics during the subject period. Yet, the focus of the ''Past" part of this presentation will be on the structure of the assigned student team research projects and their associated learning objectives. The author was able to take advantage of the International orientation of his students who came from many different countries and as a group, often had access to as many as 4-6 different languages. (EHL often attracts students from over 80 different countries each year). As EHL students are required to work in teams in conducting research as part of most all their courses, generating papers and presentations, taking as many as 6-7 courses per semester, they developed efficient, if not always effective, methods in organizing tasks.
