Innovative Leisure Practices: Cases as Conduits between Theory and Practice – Volume 3 (2017)




After the success of the past two volumes of case studies (2015 and 2016), the World Leisure Centre of Excellence at Vancouver Island University is accepting case study proposals for inclusion in the 2017 volume of Innovative Leisure Practices.  The intent of the volume is to provide a forum for the exchange of innovative practices in leisure.  Innovative practices are defined as any unique, modern or promising approaches, strategies or techniques that have been used to address current issues, opportunities or trends in leisure.  These can be practices conducted at a societal, community, or organizational level in either the field of practice or in leisure research.
The aim of the case studies is to share examples where research and practice connect in innovative ways to offer solutions for common issues and opportunities in leisure.  The volume will be shared widely via the network of World Leisure Centres’ of Excellence as a free, downloadable resource for faculty, students and practitioners.  To view the 2015 and 2016 volumes of case studies visit http://www.worldleisureviu.org/
