Abstract: The development of vaccines to provide immunity has brought some relief to many countries but, lockdowns and social distancing remain the main strategies to contain the pandemic. Due to travel restrictions and lockdowns in many countries, global tourism has been severely affected. Tourism education is one particular sector which has been ignored despite being vulnerably hit. This paper explores how COVID-19 is bringing change to the economy, and the tourism sector specifically, while also emphasising the perspective of tourism educators by focusing on the requisite challenges and reinvention. The paper discusses why COVID-19 has raised questions around the volume growth of tourism in India as against the projections made by tourism organisations.
