"Take Back Your Time": Facilitating a Student Led Teach-In
Heyne, Linda A.
Schole: A Journal of Leisure Studies and Recreation Education, v23 p91-96 2008
"Take Back Your Time" (TBYT) is a movement founded by John De Graaf (2003) that exposes the issues of time poverty and overwork in the United States and Canada. This article features the process whereby undergraduate students study De Graaf's TBYT handbook, discuss its concepts, and organize a student-led TBYT "teach-in" for their college community. Primary learning objectives include (a) increasing students' awareness of the societal issues of time poverty and overwork, (b) increasing students' understanding of how overwork and time poverty can be addressed by recreation and leisure professionals, and (c) identifying ways to reverse the effects of time poverty and help people live healthier, more balanced lives. This learning activity would be suitable for courses in leisure education, program or event planning, current issues, or the foundations of the recreation and leisure profession.
