The presentation, “Assessing the Use of Technology in the Leisure and Sport Management Curriculum,” explored the use of classroom assignments, student reflections, faculty notes and observations, in addition to semi-structured student interviews, to examine the student learning environment when the use of technology is required for coursework assignments.

The study assessed faculty perceptions regarding whether the technological component enhanced student’s comprehension of specific course content.

Hal Walker also presented “An Engaged Course Design for Teaching Event Management” during the NASSM Teaching and Learning Fair. Walker discussed an applied, student-centered approach to teaching event management.
