Section II:EES 160 Applied Play: An interdisciplinary apprach

Course Description
COURSE OVERVIEW/JUSTIFICATION
In our fast-paced, working culture, to ‘play’ has become a pejorative activity for adults. However, scientific and theoretical research shows the value of play activities for happiness, creativity, and continued development and learning.  Scholars, such as Brian Sutton-Smith, author of “The Ambiguity of Play,” have documented the function and importance of play in the lives of human and nonhuman species.  Some companies are encouraging play in their employees, with the understanding that productivity, innovation and creativity improve as a result. 

This course will allow students to experience different categories of play.  By teaching a student how to play, he/she will be better equipped socially and intellectually to live a happy, healthy and fulfilled existence.  Considering that nearly 40 billion dollars are spent by Americans annually on recreation activities, it is vital for the student to understand how they individually contribute to a healthy economy through his/her play. This course embodies a wide array of recreational activities.  The goal of this course is for students to gain a greater understanding of themselves and how they can best achieve pleasure in society. A variety of field trips will indulge students in a multitude of leisure activities.
