Course Description

This course is designed to help currently employed, full-time recreation practitioners who have a minimum of five years direct experience as a programmer (or equivalent level) become more intentional and more effective in their professional practice. Key concepts in the course include experiential learning, reflective practice, and the analysis of action theories. Learners will relate these concepts to their own workplaces with the help of a faculty supervisor and with the support of their employer. The course will take place at each learner's workplace. Students must judge their time to accommodate weekly communication with their faculty advisory and to write weekly reports about their on-site learning and research. A major term paper is also required. Prospective students must apply to the department for permission to take this course. Contact the recreation co-ordinator for more information. Graded S/U.

Students will receive credit for only one of RECR 2487 or 2497.

Registration in this course is restricted to students admitted to the Bachelor of Recreation Management and the Diploma in Recreation Leadership.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C" grade in all 1000 and 2000 level Recreation courses (or an "S" in courses graded S/U).

If missing three credits in one non-RECR course, a student must contact the department chair, in writing, requesting to register in either RECR 2487 or 2497.
