A brief description of the employee educators program (1st program):

A community of professors and instructors representing multiple academic faculties meets on a regular basis. They build capacity and drive pan-faculty initiatives to foster curriculum development and teaching and learning practices focused on sustainability.

The group of approximately 14 meets 2-3 times per semester. Meetings include professional development training – such as a guest speaker, webinar or literature discussion – and initiative planning. The group’s primary goals in the first two years of operation have been to:

1. Build within each member the capacity for knowledge and understanding about sustainability and what it means at Humber. This will be in service of the leadership activities that faculty will be taking on in the future.
2. Build awareness about sustainability across the institution, driven by the faculty champions. The group recognizes the importance of large-scale awareness and engagement before real changes can be meaningfully made at the curricular level.
So far, the Faculty Champions group has developed resources for their colleagues on going paperless in the classroom and how to integrate the Humber Arboretum’s outdoor learning spaces into their lesson plans.
