The Millenials Are Here
I find myself talking a lot about Net Generation learners, a.ka. the Millenials (see p. 70 of this link) . At UAB, my classes aren't totally undergraduates; so, it's taken me a few more years than most college professors to have my audience transition to taking on the culture of their world. Now, it's in place. These smart, savy, caring students are raising the bar on what learning looks like and how teaching needs to change, especially since many of them have grown up as students in the early school reforms of the 90's or in the more mature reforms of this decade. Bring it, Millenials! Let's change the world.
