LUNCH AND LEARN: Teaching Gen Z and Millennials – Entitlement or Just Changing Expectations?  (Thursday, November 9, 2017, Noon – 1:00 pm)

Whatever you call the current generation of 18-22 year old college students, there’s a sense that they bring different expectations to the classroom. In this luncheon workshop, we’ll explore some research about whether and how “students these days” really are different compared with previous generations.  We’ll also share and discuss ways to best acknowledge, address, and even use those differences to improve learning. Lunch will be provided to those who register by Monday, November 6Click here to register.
