As trends in higher education continue to change, we find more learning environments – whether face-to-face, virtual, or online – now have multiple generations in the same classes. “Traditional” students are not necessarily just young adults, and “non-traditional” students may not be only working adults. Technology, schedule flexibility, cost, and location availability have allowed or required students to find various options for their learning. Differences in life stages, work experiences, and general knowledge can pose challenges for collaborative learning.
Join us for this engaging, activity-based session to learn how to improve connections and communication among various generations in your classes. We will practice facilitation of discussions and engaging students from various age groups into relatable, thought-provoking dialogue. Conversation and fellowship among your colleagues will kick off the session!
