On October 11, staff and faculty from the Student and Community Engagement (SCE) division and representatives from IGNITE gathered at Humber’s North Campus for an intensive brainstorming session to develop Humber’s Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs). The session was opened by Jason Hunter, Vice-President Student and Community Engagement. Vera Beletzan, Senior Special Advisor Essential Skills, provided a project overview and Erik Lockhart from the Queens Executive Decision Centre facilitated the discussion.
Participants brainstormed potential ILOs and discussed how our ILOs will:
- articulate a common Humber language for shared graduate outcomes
- enhance the learning experience for students inside and outside the classroom
- support our graduates’ success by maximizing their employability
- build our graduates’ capacity to be agents of social good in an increasingly complex world
- communicate the value of a Humber credential
- facilitate transferability / pathways / articulation across the post-secondary system
- promote the unique advantages of Humber’s polytechnic model of education
This was a very successful session, which contributed valuable input that will help direct the development of the ILO framework. Check out the results from this session here.
