Abstract

This document highlights numerous ideas that faculty can implement to provide a triple gain, that is, a gain for students, professionals and faculty through collaborative work. We will explore traditional and innovative connections that can be made between recreation professionals, students, and faculty, within parks, recreation, and tourism management programs, with a particular focus on identifying and discussing compatible and competing viewpoints. The authors of this paper have experienced the benefits and challenges of pursuing the triple gain from all three perspectives and offer practical ideas to maximize these connections in order to bridge the gap between higher education and the professional world.
