In early June, The Centre for Teaching & Learning hosted Humber Showcase 2018: Pulse! at Humber’s beautiful Lakeshore campus. The annual event hosted more 400 Humber community members on a bright, sunny day that began with breakfast, opening remarks, and the presentation of the Humber Innovation Awards, which recognize Humber employees who have designed and implemented significant innovations that positively impact the education of students at Humber College.
A riveting keynote speech by Indigenous entrepreneur and activist Gabriel Scrimshaw followed. Scrimshaw shared her story of her journey to Stanford University: the barriers she faced, and the guidance she received along the way.
A lunchtime Marketplace allowed community members the opportunity to share initiatives and successes of the past year, while visiting various department booths for Humber Press, the Centre for Entrepreneurship, the Lakeshore Ground Interpretive Centre, Humber’s Library Services, and more.
Attendees enjoyed a choice of more than 50 workshops offered throughout the day, each presented by Humber faculty, and focusing on important topics like cultural appropriation and ethics in fashion.
In late afternoon, the academic poster session showcased faculty research projects completed over the course of the year.
Thank you to all the Showcase organizers and volunteers for making this amazing event possible. Mark your calendars: next year’s event is scheduled for June 6, 2019 at Humber North Campus.
