The Generational Mix of Higher Education: Millennials, Centennials and the Pedagogical Landscape
A new generation of students is arriving in the halls – both brick-and-mortar and virtual – of higher education. On the heels of their predecessors, the Millennials, who altered the landscape of traditional teaching methods and assessment measures, come the Centennials, who promise to shake things up in their own unique way. This generational mix of contemporary students pose both challenges and opportunities for the modern educator to instill within them the knowledge and skills they need to navigate the future they face. To do so, educators must ground these new generations in the solid foundations that are still relevant, while not being stuck in dated traditions that no longer serve the modern world.
