Co-Curricular Record Certified Learning

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 and complete the follow-up survey for each. 

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 and complete the follow-up survey for each. Options could include gardening workshops facilitated by the Etobicoke Master Gardeners, one-off ArbWalks/Talks 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 and complete the follow-up survey for each. Options could include birding and citizen science workshops held in association with Bird Studies Canada, conservation events run by the TRCA, ArbWalks/Talks run by Arboretum staff, hands-on workshops removing invasive species, or other activities.

 

What is a Co-Curricular Record?

CCR Certified Logo

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. 

HOW IT WORKS

  • Watch the Event Calendar on the Humber Arboretum website. Check individual event listings to see if they are eligible to count toward a Humber Arboretum Learner CCR (the event page will have the CCR certified logo)
  • You are responsible for registering for the events in advance (if applicable). 
  • When you arrive, check in on the regular registration with other attendees (if applicable) and let the staff member know you are planning to apply the event towards a CCR credit.
  • Learn and enjoy!
  • New for 2019/2020: After the event you will receive a survey to the same email address you used to register. Please take your time and complete the survey as thoroughly as possible. 
  • After you have participated in the required number of learning activities and completed each corresponding survey, you can apply to have your experience validated through the CCR portal (watch the video tutorial as a guide)
