The Academy of Leisure Sciences Innovation in Teaching Award Committee selected Dr. Edwin Lindsay as this year’s recipient for their prestigious award. Dr. Lindsay earned this honor by developing a gamification module used for instruction of PRT 266, Introduction to Sport Management. This technology provides a unique methodology to engage students in course content and is adaptable to other park and recreation career based courses. Dr. Lindsay’s gamification design highly engages students, encourages mentoring and learner-learner collaboration, adapts to diverse student-focused learning styles and helps develop critical thinking skills. The students found the experience to be engaging and thought provoking while providing essential job-seeking skills. Dr. Lindsay was presented with his award at the Academy of Leisure Sciences Business meeting held in conjunction with the NRPA congress in September.
