Facilitation and Interpretation Techniques

(2,2) 3

This course is designed to serve recreation students who are interested in facilitating outdoor or adventure based programs, and/or become interpreters in an outdoor or parks environment. The course will expose the student to a wide variety of facilitation/interpretation methodologies. The student will be involved in both learning and practicing these techniques. Examples of these techniques would include such things as utilization of the metaphor, and Haiku. This class will also travel to different outdoor facilities, such as outdoor education centers and state historical sites. This will enable the students to facilitate experiences in an environment unavailable at LSSU (example, a high ropes course) and to interface with individuals who provide facilitation and interpretation as a part of their professional responsibilities. Prerequisites: RECS105, RECS262.
