2016 Innovative Leisure Practices--Call for Case Studies

Innovative Leisure Practices:
Cases as Conduits between Theory and Practice – Volume 2 (2016)

After the success of the 2015 volume of case studies, the World Leisure Centre of Excellence at Vancouver Island University is accepting case study proposals for inclusion in the 2016 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 volume of case studies visit
