Fashion Students Gain Experiential Learning in Global Retail Operations Course

Fashion Students Gain Experiential Learning in Global Retail Operations Course

Thu, May 16, 2019

Over the last 8 years, our Fashion Arts and Business program have established a WIN-WIN collaboration with the Vaughan Mills Shopping Center.

This collaboration provides our 4th-semester students the opportunity to work hands-on with Mall Leasing, Marketing & Tourism Management teams to create business concepts that meet the evolving needs of the retail center. Students draw on their knowledge from previous semesters and in the Global Retail Operations course are assigned their mission: To think like retail consultants and create or source business concepts that shopping centers can implement.

As a group, students review global retail trends, mall demographics & psychographics and select a business concept worth exploring. They prepare strategies for visual presentation, marketing and customer experiences that bring this concept to life. Their sales pitch to the mall management team provides them with an opportunity to hone their presentation and selling skills. This year our managers from Vaughan Mill said: “The students had great ideas, presented well and really did a great job in coming up with unique experiences. We will surely take some ideas away with us." In addition, Vaughan Mills took the next step, " We were so impressed by the caliber of students that we would like to arrange a JOB FAIR at Humber College.”

Congratulations to all of the students, who will be able to add this element of experiential learning to their personal resumes and portfolios. Thank you to their Professor, Anna Zamparo.

During the visit, Rossie Kadiyska observed classes in Biomimicry, Sustainable technologies and Design, met with Humber exchange students, conducted interviews with KEA students on sustainability and gave a guest lecture on sustainability framework in the luxury fashion.

The visit in Denmark was a peek into a world where sustainability is weaved into the everyday activities of the Danes and has become a permanent and inseparable part of their lives: from the daily commute with bicycles (2:1 per person) to sustainable buildings, healthy and slow food, sustainable textiles and fashion and the stress free Danish way of living "hygge".

During the trip, both sides explored opportunities for collaboration and deepening the partnership. As a result of the trip, our first Fashion Management and Promotions Graduate Certificate student will complete an internship with two Danish companies working in sustainable fashion and shoes.

Second Annual Aboriginal Moot Held at the Lakeshore Campus

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 Longo 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.

With positive and professional demeanors and with confident presentation styles, students had the opportunity to showcase their findings. Our industry partners were impressed and in awe. Recommendations and suggestions were clearly welcomed and are considered for implementation. Well done Teams! We look forward to their continued growth and success from Humber and beyond.

Thanks to Wendy Burgess for her dedication to our industry partners and especially to our H-HROM students. Long hours were devoted both in and out of the classroom (industry meetings and calls, student coaching and advising sessions, encouraging pep talks) and her dedication shone when we saw the smiles on the students' faces as well as the strong nods from the industry professionals.

As well, thank you to the many HRT team members who supported the students throughout this course and semester. To Janet and Stephanie, thank you for attending the presentations to provide moral support and to meet with the industry partners.

Two student teams from the Accounting Diploma programs participated in the Ontario College Accounting Case Competition, hosted by Sheridan College.

Thu, April 11, 2019

Ensuring good physical and psychological health and safety (PH&S) in the workplace is vitally important for all Canadians.

Through an interdisciplinary approach between the Business School and School of Health Sciences, Dr. Suzy Casimiro and her students were invited to visit, investigate and advance the physical and psychological health and safety (PH&S) at Humber Valley Terrace Long Term Care Home, Etobicoke.

Under the supervision of the Executive Director at Humber Valley Terrace, Marjorie Mossman, students identified the physical hazards and explored possible psychosocial hazards of workers within this healthcare setting. By also adopting sections of the new and – the first of its kind in the world, Canadian Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (CSA-Z1003-13), students explored the many ways that jobs can affect health and safety, from potential exposures to physical hazards, to work-related mental health concerns within healthcare settings.

As a result, students were able to make recommendations on how to improve the policies, procedures and offer health & wellness program options. Overall, recommendations focused on improving the physical and organizational environment to lessen risks of injury and illness; from integrated protection from work-related safety and health hazards to the promotion of injury and illness prevention and the introduction of wellness programs- all to advance both workers’ well-being and the organization.

The Value of Study Abroad from a Student’s Perspective

The Value of Study Abroad from a Student’s Perspective

Mon, April 08, 2019

Meet Sagar Vankwani from the Bachelor of Commerce, Accounting Program.

Sagar had the opportunity to participate in a study abroad program at Hungkuang University in Taichung, Taiwan, which he describes as the best two weeks of his life: 

"In summer 2018, I had the opportunity to participate in a study-abroad program at Hungkuang University in Taichung, Taiwan. It was a two-week program, and arguably, they were the best two weeks of my life. No exaggeration.

The program was a complete package in itself. Going there, I didn't have really high expectations, but I soon discovered many of the best things that come in life are unexpected. The Taiwanese students went out of their way to help us. The program itself was very well organized. We had Chinese language classes every morning accompanied by different vocational workshops and field trips to the most exotic places in Taiwan.

Apart from all this, the program taught me something that I wouldn't have learned otherwise. I learned more about myself and my skills and abilities. I also learned some things about me that I was unaware of like my adaptability to ambiguous situations—something I could not learn in the classroom. Through making new friends from a variety of countries, I now understand the value of making lasting connections as a way to expand my personal network. The memories I made will last a lifetime. I even found a home in Taiwan—a loving mother that calls me her son. I am still in touch with her and all my new friends. I've promised them that I'll visit Taiwan again soon.

Out of all the advice that I can give to other students, I would just say: Close your eyes to any excuses. Pack your bags and just go! I would like to thank Humber’s Business School for selecting me to participate in this program. I feel honoured and grateful for the opportunity and the experience I had."

REC Students Impress Guests with Their Business Pitches

Thu, March 14, 2019

Having a good business idea is just the first step in starting a successful business.

Our Recreation and Leisure students know first-hand the steps involved; having created unique business ideas of their own as a part of their Entrepreneurship class. On March 5th, we held an Entrepreneurship Tradeshow here at Humber College. At the event, our students had the opportunity to pitch their business ideas to faculty and staff members of the Humber Community as well as guests that work within the industry.

When planning a business, it is important that those behind the business fully understand all the logistics involved, and are able to communicate them effectively to potential investors. Many logistics needs to be considered in the planning process such as establishing the target markets, conducting a SWOT analysis and planning the finances. During the Sales Concept Fair, our students were able to demonstrate their knowledge by pitching their business to the guests in attendance. The guests were also encouraged to challenge the students by asking questions regarding their business plans that may not have been answered during the original pitch. This allowed our students to exercise speaking in front of unfamiliar faces and encouraged them to be prepared for any question a potential investor may have. The students have many great business ideas, and several students plan to bring their vision to life in the near future.

Many thanks to the industry guests and Humber community who took time out of their busy day in order to attend our Entrepreneurship Tradeshow. Your presence made all the difference!

Humber also had ten mooting teams.

Two Humber teams reached round 16 and ranked fourth and sixth out of the 94 teams. One of those teams reached the semi-finals, which is the furthest a Humber team has advanced in this Undergraduate Competition. Of the team members, Danny Pallag, was one of nine mooters to receive a Distinguished Advocate Award. But, what was truly outstanding, was that the other team member, Tudor Gagea, received the Top Advocate Award, ranking first out of 188 individual participants. This was a spectacular accomplishment for Tudor and Humber. Humber has proven to be a power to be reckoned with at national competitions.

The Humber mooting teams were coached by Paige Diebel, a graduate of the Paralegal Studies degree program, who also received a Distinguished Advocates Award at the 2015 Osgoode Cup. She is a licensed paralegal with a Bay Street law firm specializing in employment law and insurance.

Humber’s Advanced Chocolate and Confectionery Students Melt Hearts with Their Hand-Crafted Confections

Fri, March 01, 2019

February 14th at Humber College didn’t have a dull moment.

From rose sales in Gourmet Express to cookie decorating in the Learning Resource Centre, there was something for everyone. This past Valentine’s Day, the Advanced Chocolate and Confectionary students had something special to offer the Humber community: handcrafted chocolate bonbons. As a part of their Bakery Entrepreneurship and Innovation class, students were tasked with creating a chocolate bonbon that would be judged by the Baking and Pastry Arts Management faculty members and sold in a box of confections.

In addition to creating the chocolates, the students also had to order the boxes, purchase the ingredients, and assemble the boxes with its logo and packaging by hand. These aspects were taken into consideration when pricing the boxes, to ensure they were able to make a profit from their sales.

One hundred boxes were sold during the pre-sales. Due to high demand, an extra 50 boxes were made with the remaining chocolates. There were 151 boxes sold in total, including the box that was on display.

Congratulations to all the students and faculty involved in making this business adventure a success.

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!

In what has already been a fantastic year for the IMPG Program, all current students were hired before the end of their first semester.

In what has already been a fantastic year for the Insurance Management Program (IMPG) at Humber, all current students were hired in the insurance industry before the end of their first semester. Four students were even hired within the first three weeks of the program!

All of the IMPG students have now been hired part-time allowing them to pursue their full-time studies, with the potential of leading to full-time roles upon graduation.

These opportunities also allowed students to fulfill their 160 hour work placement component, learn the inner workings of the insurance industry, develop their professional network, and gain valuable experience.

IMPG students have had the chance to experience what they have learned in the classroom, such as working with insurance policies, and handling auto and property claims. Some students have even been promoted to appraising, and specialty lines units within their respected companies.

With a huge talent crisis on the rise with 27% of the industry expected to retire in the next 5 years, the Humber Insurance Management Program has worked vigorously to establish strategic partnerships with best in class companies in the industry.

A huge thank you to Claims Pro, Crawford and Company and Hub International for providing these opportunities to the Humber’s Insurance Management students. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Fashion Innovation Within Take Back The Tap

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.

Culinary Students Get a Real Veal Experience

Culinary Students Get a Real Veal Experience

Tue, December 04, 2018

Veal is beef but the distinction is that it is sourced from calves instead of mature cattle.

Like every other kind of meat, there are multiple ways it can be prepared. Chef Stefan Czapalay and Chef David Song visited our culinary class here at Humber North to educate our students on all the various ways you can cook veal. They performed a demonstration right in front of our students and discussed what other food pairs well with it. After the demonstration, we had the opportunity to taste veal carpaccio, veal and risotto and more.

In addition, a local farmer came in to discuss the process in which they raise their calves, and how they are grain fed.

The winner of the veal competition held earlier this semester was also announced this evening. Congratulations to Samantha Simms, on receiving first place for her pimento smoked jerked veal sandwich. Samantha will be showcasing her talents at the Restaurant and Bar show in late February 2019.

Hospitality Industry Networking Event

Hospitality Industry Networking Event

Mon, December 03, 2018

Having a well-established network has become an important part of any career.

The purpose of networking is to build relationships with other professionals in your field in order to share and retain knowledge, expand your connections and potentially open doors for future opportunities for yourself. On November 22nd, students enrolled in the Hospitality programs had the chance to participate in a networking event here at Humber North with several industry professionals.

The two-hour event consisted of a “speed dating” format allowing for four 10 minute networking sessions with the professional of their choice, with a three-minute window in between. The last hour consisted of an open networking session with snacks and refreshments, allowing students and guests to mix and mingle. The industry professionals in attendance varied from those in the event sector, general managers, association representatives as well as various hotel and food and beverage positions. This wide variety of professionals allowed for students to network with whomever they believed would be most beneficial for them based on their area of interest.

Thank you to all the industry guests who came out to network with our students, and to all the students who participated in this great opportunity.

The event was sold out two weeks before the date and was a great success. The event raised money for two charities: The New Beginnings Support Program and The 100 Wells Malawi Project run by Humanity First.

Mon, October 01, 2018

Humber welcomed 62 students from Ningbo University for an orientation program before the final year of their Business Administration program.

Having completed two years of business management study at our partner institution in China, students learned what is needed to be a successful post-secondary student in Ontario. The two education systems are different, and it is essential students understand what will be expected of them at Humber. The academic skills they learned during the August Orientation program will enable the students to adapt to a new style of teaching and learning. Using project-based learning, students had the opportunity to research a social problem common to both Canada and China, generate possible interventions and make recommendations in a final presentation and report.

To further improve their collaboration and problem-solving skills, students participated in Workshop Wednesdays. Students learned the importance of working collaboratively as a team to accomplish specific challenges. It has been a successful month full of learning and fun. Students are ready to begin their new academic year at Humber.

In its inaugural year, the Insurance Management Ontario Graduate Certificate program saw tremendous success with a dedicated first cohort of students.

For those that don’t know, the IMPG prepares students for a variety of entry-level management career paths in the large and growing property and casualty insurance industry. Students can pursue careers in underwriting, claims, sales and others. Like all of the many programs at the Business School, the IMPG program is very demanding and requires students to complete not only Humber exams, but seven separate exams towards the Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) designation. Students in last year’s program achieved higher CIP pass ratios than the overall national college average!

In addition, 95% of IMPG students in the program landed industry placement roles, with many of them landing full-time positions at best-in-class companies such as All-State, Aviva, Northbridge Insurance, Wawanesa Insurance, Crawford Independent Adjusters and Desjardins. The IMPG program success can be attributed to the hard work and dedication of Peter Madott, and a very committed and passionate faculty that includes Annette Palalas, Jason Mancini, Susan Kates, Troy Bynoe, Kelly Hopkins, John McNeil, Bill White and Patricia Cooper.

In its second year, the IMPG program looks to build on its achievements of 2017/2018 with an exciting group of students that are enrolled in the program.

Students Receive Excellent Results on CFA Level 1 Exams

Fri, September 28, 2018

Bachelor of Commerce - Finance students wrote the CFA Level 1 exam in June 2018 and 50% of them passed!

This is an excellent result given that on average, over the last 10 years, 40% of those writing the exam passed and most who write the exam are not recent graduates and many are 2nd and 3rd-time writers. We also had 2 students who graduated the year previously who did not pass on their 1st attempt and decided to re-take the CFA Level 1 exam. This time around, both of them passed, which brings the total pass rate of that year of students to 40%. This year, given the Humber BCom Finance Degree’s recognition as a CFA Institute Affiliated University, we are able to offer 15 scholarships to graduating finance degree students who write the CFA Level 1 exam in June 2019, which significantly reduces their cost to write the exam.

Parul University Students Participate in Leadership Beyond Boundaries Program

Parul University Students Participate in Leadership Beyond Boundaries Program

Mon, September 24, 2018

Students from Parul University, Humber’s academic partner in India, participated in a 2-week Leadership Beyond Boundaries program at Humber in August.

The students were introduced to systems and design thinking for social innovation. After selecting a complex social problem found in their home community they would like to explore more, the students used systems thinking as a tool to identify the relevant stakeholders and gain a better understanding of the system’s behaviour. Mapping the system allowed students to zoom out, learn how all the different parts of the system are interrelated and identify possible intervention points. Using a human-centred design approach, students then framed the problem and zoomed in on one solution that they could implement in their home community while being full-time students. By the end of the program, the Parul University students pitched a social enterprise as a solution to the problem. Both student groups revealed they hope to submit a proposal for start-up funding at Parul University in the following semester as they believe their solution is feasible and sustainable.

Humber Spa “Evaluapp” to Streamline Classroom Learning

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."
