Generation Z Students: Who They Are and What They Need From You

Live Webinar

  • 60 minutes

Generation Z, the cohort of college students born in the mid- and late-1990s and early 2000s, has begun to arrive on college campuses, prompting many college administrators to ask if their institutions are ready for this latest “invasion”.

College campuses have traditionally been known as places where diverse groups (age, ethnicity, religious and sexual orientation) gather together for a shared learning experience. That has never been truer today with the arrival of Gen Z. The cohort that not only grew up knowing and owning computers but was fully immersed in social media at an early age.

Join this session by expert speaker Kent Seaver, where he will focus on the “why” of what we as academic institutions do. Understanding the “why” allows for strong, specific formulas in terms of academic success. The “why” allow us to understand the issue, the need for change, and the reason for implementation.

Session Highlights:

  • More financially driven than its predecessors

  • It craves authentic experiences

  • Prefers self-learning, applied learning, immersive educational experiences, and technologically-mediated instruction to faculty-driven education and passive learning
