On January 8, 2015, GRCC held its annual Faculty Learning Day. GRCC edX 2.0 featured a series of short (15-minute), "TEDx-style" presentations on various pedagogies delivered by excellent faculty. This year, we were pleased to present speakers from not only GRCC, but also Grand Valley State University, Davenport University, Cornerstone University, and Ferris State University.
Combining the GRCC 100-year theme of “Great past, bright future” with the TED concept that great ideas can involve either something new and surprising, or a compelling new take on something familiar. This year's program featured a mix of presentations on innovative teaching practices (use of new technologies, for example) and fresh approaches to traditional teaching (engaging lectures, for example). The event was held at the beautiful Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. For the complete 2015 Faculty Learning Day Program, click on the link to the right.
Thank you to everyone who helped make Faculty Learning Day 2015 a success! Mark your calendars for Faculty Learning Day 2016, which will be held on January 7, 2016.
