INTRODUCTION: Currently, demand for travel in China remains strong, and the tourism industry continues to grow. In the post-epidemic era, China's tourism industry is recovering and prospering, which also means that the tourism industry needs talent. As the demand for talent increases, basic hotel management training is gradually becoming the most significant factor affecting the development of applied professionals.

OBJECTIVES: To enhance the development of online higher education based on the Internet in China and promote the informatization of tourism management and hotel management teaching; to solve the current problems of deviation between theory and practice in hotel management majors and the inability of hotel management students to engage in related professions; and to promote the fusion of the CDIO education model and the traditional education model, and to fundamentally improve the quality of teaching in hotel management majors.

METHODS: In the study, firstly, literature research and theoretical research are used to conduct a detailed survey of CDIO education mode; then, the academic research results of CDIO are used to compare with the traditional hotel management teaching mode to summarize the problems existing in the conventional hotel management professional education; finally, information technology is measured through the empirical method to enhance the teaching and learning of hotel management.

RESULTS: There is currently a deviation between the theory and practice of online teaching in the hotel management program; the CDIO education model can better enhance hotel management teaching; and the overall understanding of on-campus practice-based learning, off-campus practice-based learning, and self-study skills of hotel management students is higher than average.

CONCLUSION: The concept and content of practice learning, the idea and standards of CDIO, the practice learning model of the Bachelor's degree in hospitality management, and the theoretical direction and feasibility of constructing a practice learning model for the Bachelor's degree in hospitality management based on CDIO theory were explored. The importance of referencing values and leadership in conjunction with progressive learning, curriculum renewal, and course design was found.
