In the UNI workshop on our Liberal Arts Core, I mentioned the need for educators to consider our students' needs and address them - not the other way around.
At UNI the average undergraduate student is 21 years old. This places this audience right in the middle of the Millennial Generation.
Don Tapscott completed $4 million worth of research into the millennial generation and shared his results in his book, Grown Up Digital. Many of the attendees of this workshop asked me for the citation so I am placing it on here on my blog. This is a quick and easy post and I will write more in-depth at a later date, but here are some links to his books and YouTube videos.
I will be adding additional resources in the near future.
What is your opinion about the needs of millennials? Is it a valid issue or should we ignore it and make our students learn how to adapt to our teaching styles?
