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 different perspectives. The various disciplinary approaches to leisure studies and practice are reviewed, and the multifaceted nature of leisure is explored. In particular, students are encouraged to identify, articulate, reflect upon, and value leisure in their own lives and the lives of others.
