ed lindsay receiving awardThe 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.
