Abstract

This study has been carried out to examine the effects of the use of additional teaching materials on student's performances, during educational activities regarding the use of package programs in the tourism sector. The study design called for two separate groups. Students were provided with a laboratory for study outside of course hours. 73 students took part in practice sessions outside of course hours, while a total of 145 students took the examinations. While researching the effects of using course books, 93 students took classes having been provided course books, while a further 97 students took the classes without course books. A post test controlled experimental design was used to compare the two groups. The study was carried out with third year students of the Akdeniz University, School of Tourism and Hotel Management in the fall term of the 2011 – 2012 educational year. To gather data on the effectiveness of usage of course books, the Fidelio program instructors applied a test with 10 open ended questions, prepared by employees working in the sector and using the program and the researchers. For the laboratory effectiveness study, a post test consisting of 10 questions was prepared by the researchers together with sector employees and applied to the students. The results of the study were evaluated using the SPSS 15.0 statistical software package. Based on the findings, the researchers have made recommendations on the use of course books and laboratory study outside of class hours in applied courses such as package program instruction. Keywords: Additional Teaching Materials, Package Program Education, Package Program Usage
