The Makerspace has a Co-Curricular Record called “Creative Digital Technologies“. Attend four workshops and complete a reflection paper to earn a Co-Curricular Record. Look for the posting on the CCR website.

The Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is an official institutional document that recognizes your involvement outside the classroom, as a significant part of your U of T experience.
