Dr. Mark Taylor Meet Generation NeXt
Today's young people have characteristics and expectations that present unique challenges to those of us charged with teaching, serving and supervising them through their university experience. They were, and are being, raised in very different social environments and have had very different formative experiences than any previous generation. Their issues with academic preparation, responsibility and self-esteem, consumer expectations, use of technology and styles of interacting can impact, and interfere with, their learning, persistence and academic success at school, and workplace readiness and success. This program will help faculty and staff understand the social, personal and academic traits and preferences our students bring to college, how these characteristics impact learning, persistence and success, and how we can best help our students reach their educational and personal goals.
