About this Unit
Introduction to Leisure and Recreation Theory introduces students to key concepts in leisure and recreation, particularly as they relate to health and well-being. Students will learn about models and theories that assist them in understanding leisure behaviours and recreation practices from various perspectives, but with a particular focus on insights from sociology and psychology. In particular, students are encouraged to identify, articulate, reflect upon, and value leisure in their own lives and the lives of others.
