The Humber Arboretum has long been a place “where learning is natural”, but now we’re helping post-secondary students make that learning official!
Humber College and University of Guelph-Humber students who take part in as few as two of the free community workshops and educational events offered by the Arboretum throughout the school year will now be able to have their participation recognized on their Co-Curricular Record.
A Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is a formal document outlining learning and skill development that has taken place outside of a post-secondary students’ academic program. After completing a CCR certified activity, a student must use the CCR portal to apply to have the experience validated by an advisor and recorded on their CCR.
COMPLETE A CCR CERTIFIED ACTIVITY THIS NOVEMBER!
The first tier of CCR activities at the Arb is called a Level One Learner, and it requires participating in just two CCR Certified workshops. There are already two CCR certified events taking place this month alone, which means a student could complete their first level in just two Saturday mornings:
These workshops can also be applied to the next tier of learning, which requires attending four similarly-themed workshops to get a Specialty Learner designation. The Bird Gardening event is eligible to count towards the Nature & Ecology Specialty OR the Gardening Specialty, and the Soil Health Workshop can be applied to the Gardening Specialty.
Students are invited to check out the CCR Certified Learning page of our website to get all the details on how the program works, and to join us at the Arb this Saturday or next to get their CCR learning started!
