This year, the first wave of Gen Z students will enter the college. Students born after the events of September 11, 2001 have lived in a world entirely different from the one we grew up in and, as a result, bring a unique set of preferences and perspective to their learning experience. While a complete picture of Generation Z is still emerging, some common characteristics are clear; Gen Z students are cynical, private, entrepreneurial and hyper-aware. Also, like Millennials that came before them, Gen Z is technology-reliant and exceptionally skilled at multitasking. Recognizing the skills, traits, and preferences of the Gen Z learner, reliance on traditional instructional strategies is simply ineffective. In this webinar, we will explore challenges associated with teaching Gen Z students and identify innovative (and effective) instructional approaches to create a stimulating, engaging learning environment. Further, we will examine how technology can be integrated into the classroom to create a collaborative, dynamic learning experience that meets the needs of Gen Z students.
