Humber College and University of Guelph-Humber students have the opportunity to have their participation in Humber Arboretum educational events acknowledged on the formal CCR transcript provided by their school.
The Humber Arboretum offers numerous free workshops and educational experiences throughout the year related to ecology, gardening, and sustainability. Participating in as few as two CCR Certified events can earn students an activity listing on their Co-Curricular Record:
Level One Learner
Attend at least two (2) Humber Arboretum workshops or public events which have been designated as CCR eligible.
But why stop at Level One?
Specialized Learner: Gardening
Attend at least four (4) Humber Arboretum events that have been designated as eligible for the CCR Gardening Specialty. Options could include gardening workshops facilitated by the Etobicoke Master Gardeners, one-off Lunch and Learns on gardening for the environment, or planting events.
Specialized Learner: Nature and Ecology
Attend at least four (4) Humber Arboretum events that have been designated as eligible for the CCR Nature and Ecology Specialty. Options could include birding and citizen science workshops held in association with Bird Studies Canada, conservation events run by the TRCA, Lunch and Learns run by Arboretum staff, hands-on workshops removing invasive species, or other activities.
Specialized Learner: Eco-Systems Thinking (New for 2018!)
For this specialized credit, students will need to take part in four SPECIFIC Lunch and Learns and take part in a reflection activity at the end of each:
Friday November 23 - What is Nature RX? The Benefits of Spending Time in Nature
Tuesday March 26 - Invasive Species Management
Wednesday April 10 - The Unruly Arb: Pests, Poisons and Prickly Things
This new credit is aligned with Humber College's ILO Project.
HOW IT WORKS
Provided to students by Humber College or the University of Guelph-Humber, the Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is a formal record of a student's skill development that has taken place outside of the classroom. This additional transcript is intended to support the student's future applications for employment or other opportunities.
