The Play Around the World project provides a 3-month international or Canadian based, cross-cultural field placement working with children and youth of all abilities in the area of play, recreation and sport. Students apply and are selected in Fall Term, and then have a significant time commitment during the Winter Term to prepare for their Intersession field placement. Travel takes place May through August. This course represents the theoretical aspect of the experience, and involves written and creative work in the area of programming in cross-cultural settings. Prerequisite: KRLS 421 is strongly recommended. Corequisite: KRLS 441. Credit will be granted for only one of KRLS 440 or PERLS 440.
