Are students different from 10-15 years ago or did you just grow old? Generational theorists agree that the current cohort of students, dubbed Millennials, is indeed unique in formative experiences, beliefs, attitudes, and goals. However, the usual characterization of Millennials as facile with technology, chronically multitasking, and incurably entitled misses the mark and is not conducive to productive pedagogical reflections. In this workshop, we will examine the societal trends that have shaped our students and affected their readiness for college and their attitudes about learning. We will link Millennial theory to the learning sciences to draw teaching implications for fostering students' intellectual development and metacognitive skills.
