On November 24, 2021, the FSCS hosted a Global Speaker Webinar (GSW) event in partnership with our academic partner, Saxion University, in the Netherlands.
The GSW series is an online event that brings together experts from Canada and abroad, to share their experience working in the field. This series actively brings together students from across the Faculty of Social and Community Services (FSCS) at Humber and from another global academic partner, to learn about similarities and differences in approaches to work being done at the local and global level.
This GSW event was held as part of International Education Week 2021, and brought together experts in the field of mental health and addictions from the Jean Tweed Centre, (Canada) and Tactus Healthcare (Netherlands) to share their work, giving participants an opportunity to hear similarities and contrasts in their approaches. Students, faculty and staff from across Humber and Saxion were invited to attend this free event, with a particular focus on participants from the Addictions and Mental Health, Behavioural Sciences and Community Development programs at Humber and the Applied Psychology program at Saxion. This event allowed participants a chance to reflect, discuss their learnings with peers domestically and internationally, and ask questions directly to the speakers.
The GSW can be developed on different relevant topics for programs across the FSCS. Faculty should contact Ayesha Amin, Global Learning & Strategic Initiatives Coordinator, if interested in learning more about this initiative, or if you have a topic you would like to propose for an upcoming GSW event.
