Mowatt Receives Academy of Leisure Sciences 2014 Excellence in Teaching Award

The Academy of Leisure Sciences is dedicated to the intellectual advancement of leisure sciences by recognizing outstanding scholars, holding meetings and symposia, and facilitating activities that promote research and scholarly activity. Each year the Academy hosts the ALS Teaching Institute, designed to facilitate the discussion of teaching and learning, the practices of instruction and administration, and the importance of leisure among educators, but to also highlight and celebrate their accomplishments.

During the event, the Academy honors the field’s most talented educators with the Excellence in Teaching Award, recognizing a colleague who has demonstrated outstanding ability as a teacher of leisure services over the course of her or his career. The 2014 award will honor SPH Associate Professor Dr. Rasul Mowatt of the department of Recreation, Park, and Tourism Studies for his contributions to the field and dedication to education in the field.
