Second Annual Aboriginal Moot Held at the Lakeshore Campus
Thu, May 16, 2019
On April 12, 2019, Paralegal Degree students held the Second Annual Aboriginal Moot at the Lakeshore Campus.
The Aboriginal Moot was the capstone assignment for students in the Indigenous Legal Perspectives course. To open the Second Annual Aboriginal Moot, students toured the Indigenous Cultural Markers recently installed at the Lakeshore campus.
The Faculty of Business is meeting Humber’s aspirations pursuant to the Indigenous Education Protocol, and has responded to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, by modifying the Paralegal Degree Program curriculum. The new course compares Aboriginal Law with Indigenous Legal Traditions. Professor Shirley Wales, a lawyer and former Adjudicator for the survivors of the Indian Residential Schools, designed and taught the new course. She incorporated research from her PhD studies, including the Indigenous Legal Traditions course taught by an Elder.
The Aboriginal Moot follows the format of the Kawaskimhon National Aboriginal Moot. Most Canadian Law Schools participate in the Kawaskimhon National Aboriginal Moot. The Moot is also known as “The Talking Circle”. Students engage in roundtable negotiations with the aim of reaching a consensus-based settlement. They rely on Indigenous Legal Traditions, as well as provincial, federal, and international law. The students were honoured to be joined at the Second Annual Aboriginal Moot by Associate Dean James Cullin, and by Paralegal Degree faculty members Dr. Karen Schucher and Dr. John Allen.

International Development Degree Alumnus Secures Job Post-Graduation
Wed, February 06, 2019
Ryan Geleynse, an International Development Degree grad, began working with EduDeo Ministries as the Eastern Canada Key Relationship Manager.
Upon graduation from the International Development Degree at Humber, Ryan Geleynse began working with EduDeo Ministries as the Eastern Canada Key Relationship Manager. EduDeo is an organization that works to advance and support Christian education around the world. Ryan’s job is to build relationships with EduDeo’s donors, whether households, schools, churches or foundations, and to find alignment between their passions and the organization’s projects.
Ryan secured a placement during his degree with World Renew, an organization linked to the Christian Reformed Church. His placement in the Global Volunteer Department became a source of income and employment as he completed his degree. World Renew places hundreds of volunteers in roles around the world every year to respond to disasters, work in community development or to service communities. Ryan loved that the organization’s volunteers would range from students to retirees.
Ryan says, “I’m so thankful for education I received at Humber. My degree provided a critical lens for engaging some of the challenges within the sector. I can approach our donors with confidence, knowing I’m there to advocate on behalf of our partners, providing necessary nuance to conversations that may head off the rails, otherwise. However, I miss the readings, the papers around topics I found provoking, and classroom discussions we had at Humber.”
Ryan married during his time at Humber College. His wife works in the international development field, too; however, her career has been suspended as she gave birth to their first child in July, Oliver, a baby boy. Congratulations!

Fashion Innovation Within Take Back The Tap
Tue, December 04, 2018
Fashion Management and Promotions students visited the Humber Lakeshore Welcome Center to explore the impact of waste on our environment.
The Take Back the Tap initiative was a collaboration between the Fashion Graduate Certificate program, Humber Sustainability and Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Center. In addition to learning about the most common pieces of garbage found in Lake Ontario and textile products that can be made from recycled materials, the students were able to engage with the speakers about how the fashion industry hurts our environment. Students engaged in an interactive discussion on steps we can make within our own personal lives and within the fashion supply chain to reduce and eliminate waste.
The fashion industry is one of the most impactful industries in waste and pollution. There are many things that we can do to eliminate waste, such as: reducing consumption of non-sustainable products, choosing to buy local or Canadian-made products that have not travelled around the globe, and finding ways to reuse garments and accessories in order to reduce the amount of textiles ending up in landfills. The visit reinforced Humber strategic priorities of career-ready citizens and innovation in education.

Humber Spa “Evaluapp” to Streamline Classroom Learning
Mon, June 18, 2018
George Paravantes MFA IxD, Program Coordinator Multimedia Design and Development, has helped the Humber Spa develop their "Evaluapp."
"The Humber Spa App is a Tablet Application focused on moving the conversion forward on Mobile Learning tools in the classroom. The Tablet Application is focused on helping facilitate the “Moment of Need” and feedback to students as a Mobile Learning Support Tool.
The tablet application has been designed using Human-Centered Design methods to better understand both the lab technologist and student needs. The Tablet App enables lab technologists to mark more effectively and share student feedback in real-time. The classroom tablet scenario can be either an assessment or an evaluation.
Many of the in-process evaluations and assessments technologists use in labs tend to be on paper and require a transfer to a digital LMS system which can delay crucial feedback for students. Timely feedback can help to progress students more confidently in a project in class. Critical feedback at the right moments can sometimes create the creative confidence we look to instill in the students' project and work.
Finally, the tablet application has been purposely designed to be used not just by one program at Humber but any program or school across the college that evaluates or assess in-process work. It imports banner students list and lets the technologist create Assessments and Evaluations with a rubric in a fast intuitive gesture-driven touch Interface."

The event featured a welcome and overview of the exhibit given by Alexandra Palmer, the fashion costume senior curator and chair of the Veronika Gervers Research Fellowship in Textiles & Costume at the ROM. This was followed by a main-lobby reception before the groups were brought in to view the exhibition.
Jennifer Dawson, Fashion Arts Business program coordinator, collaborated with Douglas Mandel, the VP of Dior Canada and Las Vegas, to give students exposure to this fashion visionary and vital moment in the history of western fashion.
“It’s great to learn the history of fashion, especially in a generation that is not run by social media. It’s great to see how they promoted this fashion and to see how Christian Dior played a prominent role in Canadian fashion,” said one student after viewing the exhibit.
This event was an excellent learning and networking experience for students as they prepare to launch their own Fashion Show, Haute Humber, on April 10th.

Tue, January 02, 2018
Tudor Gagea, a third-year Paralegal Studies degree student, won a Top Ten Oralist Award at the 2017 Capital Cup Mooting Competition in Ottawa
The Capital Cup is an annual debate competition. This year, over 180 students argued a 2016 provincial case of New Brunswick, R v Comeau, where a man was arrested for possessing more than the legal amount of alcohol not bought from New Brunswick’s liquor corporation.
Tudor first heard about the competition from Paralegal program coordinator, Bernie Arnon. In preparation for the competition, Tudor and his teammates attended weekly sessions where they read through cases several times in order to develop a solid understanding of the issues. From there, they presented arguments and gave feedback to each other.
“Getting involved with mooting at Humber was one of the best decisions I've ever made,” says Tudor. “I've made connections with peers and mentors that will last a lifetime. I've also gotten a deeper insight into my field and have been able to apply my advocacy skills in a way that's rewarding and meaningful.”
Congratulations, Tudor, on your success!
