DUVE Project

Tue, June 18, 2019

Jaspreet Bal is a part of the DUVE project which connects colleges from Denmark, Uganda, Vietnam and Humber here in Canada.

The project aims to end violence in the respective countries and has set out to create an e-learning platform that serves this goal. After their kick-off seminar in December, the professors split into two teams according to their various subject matter expertise. One team, comprised of professors, nurses and midwives have taken on violence in health settings. The other team, comprised of educators, CYCs and ECEs, has taken on the task of addressing violence in institutional settings.

Students and professors have since visited each other across the globe! From midwifery students in Hoima, Uganda, to a conference on Kindergartens in Hanoi, Vietnam, colleagues have continued to connect and build content. The e-learning activities are being submitted. Stay tuned for the material that will be made available when the project closes in 2020.

Students Make Health and Safety Recommendations for the Humber Valley Terrace Long Term Care Home

Students Make Health and Safety Recommendations for the Humber Valley Terrace Long Term Care Home

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.

Thu, April 11, 2019

On March 16th, 2019, World Wildlife Foundation conducted its first event of the year, "Living Planet@Campus: Designing Change for a Living Planet."

Over 80 students from over 15 colleges and universities around Ontario participated in the event, including students from The Business School.

The day-long event saw team work at its best as team Humber worked very hard on its idea and presentation. Collaborating with students from different fields helped participants gain an insight into what the issues faced by other industries are and forced students to think outside the box.

Despite the fact that the Humber team did not win first place, the team's idea inspired the Office of Sustainability to install an art piece made out of paper cups to spread awareness on the importance of carrying personal reusable mugs. The outcome was highly rewarding as students learned how an idea can transform and make a difference in the world today.

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."

School of Social and Community Services Receives Funding from Global Affairs Canada

Sat, December 01, 2018

In collaboration with the Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola, the FFCS was a successful recipient of the 2018 Faculty Mobility Program Scholarship.

Receiving $7,000.00 in funding from the Government of Canada, the joint-project proposal was one of 33 selected from a competition open to post-secondary institutes across Canada. Overall, 33 projects from 22 institutes across seven provinces were selected. The Faculty Mobility Program provides full-time faculty at Canadian post-secondary institutes with short-term opportunities to teach or conduct research in Latin Americas and the Caribbean, at the college, undergraduate and graduate levels. In collaboration with USIL, the SSCS submitted a project proposal titled “Case-based Curriculum through Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL).” In May 2019, Community Development faculty from USIL and Humber College will create case-based learning (CBL) modules that focus on people coming together to identify and address local issues. Each case will include detailed background information on socio-cultural, political and economic realities that impact decision making and outcomes related to community work in each country. The cases will support students in examining root causes of community problems and resources/solutions available to address issues through different cultural lenses. Using Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) models, faculty from Canada and Peru will connect their classrooms via webinars to work through cases and learn from one another.

Sat, December 01, 2018

The SSCS was successful in its third consecutive application for funding from the Wofford Fellowship.

This funding will go directly to supporting students embarking on a faculty-led trip to Lima, Peru in May, 2019. This funding covers 50% of the program cost. This is an excellent opportunity for students who may not consider this experience because of financial barriers to participate.

The trip will provide students with service learning opportunities in Villa El Salvador; an area that is organizing and building community capacity many years after the Shining Path movement. Students will learn about leadership development within the community, how people are engaged locally and how local services and resources have been accessed and developed after a forced-migration period. Students will develop their cultural competence and gain an appreciation for 'personal resiliency' and 'post-traumatic growth' in relation to people's ability to 'start over' and care for their community and one another. In keeping with our school commitment to recognizing study abroad opportunities as field experience, the trip will be recognized as a field and seminar course for some programs of study within the School. Faculty are encouraged to promote the trip to their students.

Congratulations to Doug Thomson as the recipient of the 2018 John and Suanne Roueche Excellence Award. 

The honour is given to teachers who show exceptional teaching, learning and demonstrated leadership. Each year, Humber celebrates the outstanding contributions of its faculty by honouring one faculty member who has demonstrated an enthusiasm for teaching, has enabled student success through an ongoing commitment to inclusion, has demonstrated leadership amongst one’s peers and who has worked to build capacity in his/her department.

  • Risk factors, including trauma, family environment, lack of non-family adults/mentors, lack of community programs, negative peers, and negative school experiences;
  • Systemic barriers, including racism, poverty, lack of community safety; and
  • Barriers after being incarcerated, including accessing employment due to a criminal record and a lack of education, and returning to the same environment with little support.

Humber Professor Appointed as Deputy Judge

Humber Professor Appointed as Deputy Judge

Mon, October 01, 2018

Farah Jamal Karmali, a Law Clerk/Paralegal Professor, has been appointed as a Deputy Judge of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Small Claims).

Small Claims Court is the busiest court of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. Deputy Judges preside over civil cases up to a monetary limit of $25,000 (expected to increase to $50,000). As a Deputy Judge, Farah adjudicates claims argued by lawyers, paralegals and self-represented individuals - so there are unique challenges and opportunities to administering justice for the litigants.

Furthermore, Farah's book, Corporate Law for Ontario Businesses, 2nd Ed. (Thomson Reuters, 2017) has been adopted as the official text to teach Corporate Law for the Institute of Law Clerks of Ontario (ILCO). ILCO is the professional organization representing law clerks; it also provides them with opportunities to upgrade their education, after they have received a law clerk diploma. Farah was asked to rewrite ILCO's corporate law curriculum, because of her expertise in this area. Her textbook is now in the law libraries of at least two law schools - Osgoode Hall Law School, and the Faculty of Law at Queens.

Professor Publishes Research Paper in the Journal of Health Care Quality of Assurance

Professor Publishes Research Paper in the Journal of Health Care Quality of Assurance

Mon, October 01, 2018

Business School Professor Nabeel Mandahawi's recent research paper has been published in the International Journal of Health Care Quality Assurance.

This journal is one of the Emerald Insight journal papers. Emerald is a global publisher, linking research and practice to the benefit of society which manages more than 290 journals and over 2,350 books and book series volumes.

The purpose of the paper is to present the deficiencies in teamwork skills at hospitals by identifying the training needs to improve teamwork-related soft skills of caregivers to enhance staff satisfaction and improve quality of care. A self-administrated questionnaire was designed to study the deficiencies in teamwork and team leadership. The survey has been distributed to physicians, nursing and anesthesiologists operating in emergency departments, surgical operating rooms and intensive care units from various hospitals. Around 410 questionnaires were distributed, and a total of 323 questionnaires were completed for an overall response rate of 78.8%. The study showed that lack of teamwork skills resulted directly or indirectly in medical errors, and it played a major role in their job dissatisfaction in working under their team leaders and/or with teammates. Read Nabeel's research paper.

Ningbo Students Attend Orientation Program at Humber

Ningbo Students Attend Orientation Program at Humber

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.

Winterstations 2017

Winterstations 2017

Mon, March 27, 2017

The third annual Winterstations Design Competition sees the Kew, Balmy, and Scarboro beaches transformed into interactive art installations.

Of the eight winning entries, Humber college students in Art Foundation, Visual and Digital Arts, Interior Design, and Industrial Design proposed and constructed a winning entry that will be unveiled on Family Day, February 20th.

Explorers are challenged with what is and what can be through a visual distortion of reality in The illusory. Constructed of highly reflective linear panels, the circumambulatory experience pulls the explorer into the centre for a moment of introspection and to experience an ever-changing illusion of reality. From afar, the structure is incognito, reflecting the surrounding environment and fading into it. Entering the space, the explorer views misconstrued, mirroring illustrations of themselves and their surroundings.

The inspiration for the Illusory came from the relationship shared between humans and the environment. The site itself inspired the shape of the piece, where from afar the complete form curves and angles with the sloping beach while its reflectivity causes it to disappear into the sky. The installation is meant to provoke curiosity. After approaching the piece and entering into a circular space, participants view fragmented versions of themselves and the environment. The Illusory is an introspective experience, depicting humans themselves as the catalyst for change in the present environment.

"Land of Nod" Wins Runner-Up

Sat, January 14, 2017

FMTV thesis film "Land of Nod" won runner-up in Best Live Action category in Canada's Top Ten Student Shorts Programme on January 14, 2017.

The Land of Nod is the coming of age story of the sixteen-year-old Nicholas, a son of a local serial killer. Tormented by his classmates and uncared for by his alcoholic mother, Nicholas is on a quest to find out if he is anything like his father. His only ally is Enna, a fifteen-year-old girl who is obsessed with finding the body of one of the victims, her sister. Unsure of himself and who he might end up to be if he lets anger reign, Nicholas must look past guilt and others’ perceptions in order to move on. The Land of Nod is a dark coming of age story that explores the loss of innocence, the truth of nature and nurture, and the victims of murder that are not talked about: their families.
