Humber's Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Definitions - January 17, 2020

January 17, 2020
Nancy Simms

The Humber community has collaboratively developed the definitions for the terms Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for the College. The Centre for Human Rights, Equity & Diversity would like to thank the Humber community for their input over the years as the definitions have been updated.

As these are "living" words with definitions that are constantly evolving, we are inviting everyone once again to review the definitions below and provide feedback. Kindly send your feedback to humanrights@humber.ca by Tuesday, January 21, 2020. We thank you for your participation with this process.

The definitions for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for review are:

Equity: refers to the intentional and systemic approach to remove historic and current barriers for equity-seeking groups. Humber applies specific measures and practices to support fair and just outcomes.

Diversity: refers to the social, cultural and political identities of individuals and their different worldviews, knowledges, practices, and experiences. Humber values and respects the contributions of its diverse students and employees that leads to an enriched learning, working and living environment.

Inclusion: refers to the active and intentional engagement of people in all their social, cultural and political identities that contribute to a sense of belonging. At Humber, this engagement is grounded in respect, and all members of the college community are recognized as valued contributors. Inclusion enriches innovation, sustainability and excellence in curricula, research, programs and services.

Inclusive Curricular Design Certificate - January 17, 2020

January 17, 2020

The Inclusive Curricular Design Certificate (ICDC) encompasses the key elements of multiple teaching and learning approaches to offer a robust and accessible learning experience for all students. The principles of inclusive curricular design focus on a proactive rather than reactive approach to course design and are founded in equity, collaboration, flexibility and accountability. This certificate addresses the idea that students are not meant to fit into a traditional “one-size-fits-all” model of education and that applying the principles of inclusive design will ensure that the range of student diversities, abilities, and needs arebeing met through a number of teaching and learning strategies.

The certificate is comprised of three courses and successful participants receive a certificate of participation.

This certificate has been accredited by the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) – Educational Developers Caucus (EDC) of Canada to ensure quality in teaching and learning. For more information, please visit EDC Accreditation information.

To register, please send an email to Falisha Rowe at falisha.rowe@humber.ca.

Humber and Renewed Computer Technology Partnership - January 15, 2020

January 15, 2020
Nivedita Lane

We are very excited to announce that Humber has partnered with Renewed Computer Technology (RCT) to offer a low-income computer purchasing program for Humber students and community clients this semester (Winter 2020).

Humber is the first higher education institution in Ontario to partner with RCT in this way and offer a purchasing program that aims to make technology affordable and accessible to our learners with financial need. To date, RCT has only worked with non-profit organizations and K-12 school boards. Up to 300 computers will be available during the winter semester. We intend to pilot this program in winter 2020 and then scale up the number of available computers for purchase in the 2020-21 academic year.

Detailed information about the purchasing program will be circulated with stakeholders across Humber’s academic and student service departments, including Ignite. Students will need to apply online using a special code specific to their campus locations.

Computers must be purchased by mid-February and will be delivered to specified North and Lakeshore Campus pick-up locations by mid-March. The purchase cost is $161 for a laptop is and $71 for a desktop package. All computers come pre-loaded with Windows, MS Office, other learning software as well as a two-year warranty. Desktop packages also include monitor, keyboard and mouse.

Low-income eligibility requirements for the purchasing program are noted on the flyer.

In keeping with Humber’s commitment to sustainability, we are also pleased to share that Community Outreach & Workforce Development will be working with Information Technology Services as well as the Office of Sustainability to ensure that this partnership with RCT is connected to initiatives that encourage the Humber community to recycle technology over the next year. ITS has generously supported the collection of computers for RCT’s low-income program in the past and we are pleased that this will continue as part of a collective strategy. Please stay tuned for more updates!

Panopto: Planned Downtime for Server Migration - January 15, 2020

January 15, 2020

Panopto Platform

Hello Humber Community, 

We have previously shared with you that Humber’s Panopto Platform will be migrated to Canadian servers on Friday, January 17, 2020. This message contains additional information and resources that will help to ensure a seamless transition. 

Please read below for information with regards to how this may impact you. 

  • Faculty/Staff: All creator abilities will be disabled during the migration window between approximately 6 a.m. on Friday, January 17 through to 2 p.m.on Saturday, January 18. This means that no videos or content may be uploaded or edited during this time. Students will not have access to your Panopto content for approximately one hour on Saturday. 

  • Students: All videos or content on Panopto will be unavailable for approximately one hour between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 18. 

  • Live Event Teams: Remote Recorders, API Keys, or RTMP Streaming will need to be reconfigured. Please see below. 

What do I need to know? 

  • All content will be automatically transferred by Panopto & Humber’s Panopto Support Team. No action is required on your part, before or during the migration. 

  • If you have embedded your videos on Blackboard, or if you have shared content via any other means (such as e-mail), your links and embeds will continue to work after the migration. 

  • During the migration, you will not be able to upload any content. 

  • If you make any changes during the migration, those changes will not be transferred and will be lost. 

Do I need to do anything after the migration? 

The majority of users can simply continue to login as you normally would. If you are using the Panopto desktop/mobile apps, are part of an events team, or have used Panopto quizzes with Blackboard, please follow the steps below: 

Please note that there may be updates to the above job aids from now until the migration has completed. For the most up-to-date information, visit the Migration to Canada blog post on Humber’s Panopto site.

Kathy Donaldson

After 34 years at Humber, Joanne Settle, one of our most senior Accessibility Consultants at our Lakeshore Campus in the Student Wellness & Accessibility Centre has announced she will bid us farewell at the end of 2019 and ease into retirement.

Joanne began her journey at Humber in April 1986. She has spent her professional career in interestingly varied student-facing roles, as part of the network in student affairs, supporting our learners in the Humber Community.

Joanne has always conveyed her passion for working with diverse learners and has had an incredible impact in their lives, earning her the adoration and respect of her teammates and colleagues.

She has been a thoughtful contributor to shaping Accessible Learning Services and how we provide support and facilitate access to resources. Joanne has further used her voice and influence through her many accomplishments within and outside the team, particularly, in forging solid partnerships with allies and faculty across the college.      

While it is a loss for our team, this announcement comes with excitement for what lies ahead for Joanne, which we all hope will be a wonderful new chapter in her life. 

She has been a champion in the post-secondary landscape for accessibility and education and we will greatly miss her and her bright smile!

Retirement: Wendy O'Brien - December 2, 2019

December 2, 2019
Dawn Macaulay

After 26 years, Dr. Wendy O’Brien has decided to retire from teaching to pursue her other passions. Wendy has made significant contributions to Humber programs by developing some of the very first Degree breadth courses, including Theories of Beauty, still one of our most popular courses. She was also instrumental in inspiring our incoming degree students by leading active and engaging sessions during orientation week.

Wendy is a staunch supporter of Liberal Education in our diploma programs as well. Early in her career, she was a key contributor to our foundational course (then known as HUMA 024) by writing an introductory piece on A Brief History of the Self which appeared in three editions of the textbook and was taught by nearly every faculty member. Most importantly, Wendy has supported approximately 4,500 students in finding their way into areas of philosophy ranging from esthetics and ethics to epistemology.

Wendy immerses herself in her interests. As a lifelong learner, she returned to university to complete her doctoral degree while a full-time faculty member. As an avid reader, she hosted the By the Lake Book Club for 10 years. As an art aficionado, she joined the Art Gallery of Ontario as a tour Instructor. I’m excited to know what her newest adventure will be. For those of you in FLA, Wendy will attend the Holiday Event on December 12 where you may be able to catch up and learn more about her plans for the New Year.

Please join me in congratulating Wendy on her retirement!

July 23, 2019
Daniel Alonzo

Parking Lot 13 will be closed for maintenance and repaving on Wednesday, July 24, 2019.

  • All staff permit holders who would usually park in Lot 13 may use Lot 1 to park during the repaving – all staff permit holder ID access cards are already programmed for Lot 1 card reader access
  • If you have an assigned parking space in Lot 14 you are not affected as Lot 14 will remain open – you will still be able to enter Lot 14 through the Lot 13 entrance
  • If you cannot find a parking space in Lot 1 please go to Lot 4
  • Lane E will remain open

We are expecting the duration of the work to be about four weeks and apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

NX and K Building Closure – North Campus - July 22, 2019

NX Building and part of K Building will be closed over the long weekend from Friday, August 2 at 4 p.m. to Monday, August 5 at 8 p.m.

No access will be allowed into NX including the ramps on K, and limited access to areas of K will be allowed. Alternative route signage will be installed to help redirect users. The attached documents detail the areas affected. 

During this closure, NX will undergo a Whole Building Air Leakage Test which is the last step for Passive House certification. As the first net-zero carbon retrofit building in Canada, and hopefully the first Passive House certified retrofit, Humber’s NX Retrofit project is receiving interest from organizations throughout North America that are looking for ways to reduce carbon emissions to meet provincial, federal and Paris Accord targets. We believe this project is an example of Humber delivering "national leadership in sustainable campuses" as a core value of our Strategic Plan.

For any questions please contact Spencer Wood at x5242 or Rui Raposo at x5960.
