Consultancy and Community
In addition to its roles in relation to teaching and research, the Department of Sport Science, Tourism and Leisure is also engaged in a number of consultancy and community activities that are often described collectively as knowledge transfer. Knowledge transfer simply refers to activities that seek to apply the wide range of expertise in scientific, social scientific and management areas of sport, tourism and leisure for the benefit of businesses, the community and individuals.
In some cases this involves advisory roles on organisations such as Active Canterbury and Tourism South East (our Community activities) and in others it involves the provision of services such as physiological testing and advice on health related exercise (our Consultancy activities).
