Delhi Recreation-Education Project Report. Volume Three, Curriculum: Educational Program in Outdoor Recreation Management.
Williams, Henry G., Jr.; And Others
A survey of colleges offering 2-year programs in some phase of recreation was undertaken to determine what should be the major thrust of the recreation-education program for SUNY Agricultural and Technical College in Delhi, New York. In planning the curriculum, it was recommended that there be a flexible educational program which would allow a wide array of possible emphases but which would center on a resources-oriented base with emphasis on management, administration, and maintenance. Recommendations for administrative consideration included establishment of (1) an interdisciplinary academic unit to house the outdoor recreation management program, (2) an advisory council to give direction to the program, and (3) services to meet the needs of the students. Two curricula were suggested: a technical curriculum designed to educate associate professionals for employment and a transfer curriculum designed to provide the first 2 years of a B. A. degree program in recreation studies. Philosophies, objectives, descriptions, structures, components, outlines, and course descriptions of both curricula were formulated. Lists of needed physical facilities, instructional aids, and equipment were developed. References and a summary of potential texts are included. Related documents are RC 004 156, RC 004 157, and RC 004 159. (AN)
