The ultimate goal of the recreation and park profession is to improve the quality of life for the people and communities we serve. We often do this by providing programs for people. It is important for the student to realize the breadth of recreation program possibilities and to be able to analyze and apply the program planning principles to deliver services in a variety of recreation settings. As a full-immersion service-learning course, PRT 358 is designed to provide knowledge and tools to enable the student to achieve the above objectives. For many students, this should be one of the most valuable courses in the entire PRT curriculum.

1. Title change:  We are changing the title of the course from The Recreation Program to Recreation Program Planning. The new title more clearly reflects the content of the course. 


2. We are changing the course credit from 3 hours to 4 hours. As a full-immersion service-learning course, PRT 358 requires students to learn course concepts and to apply them in practical ways through partnerships with community agencies. Students invest approximately 4 hours per week in direct contact with instructor and with community partners. Additional time is spent learning course material, in reflection, and on developing and implementing their service-learning projects.


3. We are changing the problem session to a laboratory session to comply with the current definitions of problem session and laboratory session.
