This week you will explore leisure participation. You will be taken through exercises relating to your week of lifestyle that you worked through in week one in preparation for your first tutorial. You will be guided through sport and recreation data as a case study of leisure participation in Australia. Hopefully you have read chapter one of Australian Leisure (your official text).
Review your seven day lifestyle analysis
Reflect on the following questions:
Your first video is from 1950 and called “Better Use of Leisure Time” and provides an example of leisure participation in 1950. While watching this clip please consider how the world has changed since then.

In contrast to the above video from 1950, please watch this video of Professor Dr. Ulrich Reinhardt. He delivered this talk at TEDxBerlin 2012 "Future 3.0".
Leisure Time 3.0 or What We Really Like to Do | Dr Ulrich Reinhardt | 13:56 mins
Reflecting on this video please visit the Week 2, Discussion 1 and respond to the following questions:
i. How does their analysis of their weeks activities relate to the information provided by Professor Reinhardt’s presentation?
ii. How does your analysis of your week compare to the information provided by Professor Reinhardt?
Please then take a look at the responses of fellow students. Feel free to comment on their responses to begin a discussion around leisure participation and the changing environment.
