On October 9, 2015, the GRCC English Department full-time faculty participated in their annual Learning Day. This is a day that is designated for professional development, departmental growth, and strengthening the department as a whole. This year, Learning Day was held at Thought Design Learning Studios in Rockford, Michigan. Thought Design offers a holistic and diverse learning experience to improve thinking and brain health. English Department faculty participated in numerous activities and exercises focused on the latest brain science and how that relates to empathy, building relationships, and making better connections with students. The session concluded with the entire department working together to prepare a meal from scratch to further promote improved communication, new ways of thinking together, and problem solving. Hats off to the English Department for continuously striving to grow personally and professionally to better serve our students.
