Student Team Project: Gender Differences in Team Project Experience and Attitudes Toward Team-Based Work

Keywords

gender, attitude, team project, team-based work

Abstract

The development of favorable behaviors and attitudes in team-based work is crucial in hospitality and tourism education. In this article, the authors examine the gender difference in team project experience and attitudes toward team-based work among students majoring in hospitality management. Female students have attitudes toward team-based work that are more negative than male students. Also, gender is a significant moderator in that female students' perception of a group's teamwork, in comparison with that of male students, is more significant in predicting student attitudes. Implications of these findings for hospitality and tourism educators are discussed.
