Engaging and Working with Generation Z

Determined, open-minded, compassionate. These are just some of the many characteristics of Generation Z, those born from 1995 to 2010. Although some characteristics may look similar to the millennial, Generation Z brings a whole new set of attributes and experiences to higher education. This new cadre of students is challenging us to re-conceptualize higher education to ensure we are providing the most meaningful and effective learning and engagement experiences possible. This year's Professional Development Day will help attendees to better understand the characteristics, motivations, values, and preferences of Generation Z and how those impact the college experience. Corey Seemiller, a faculty member in the Department of Leadership Studies in Education and Organizations at Wright State University, will provide the keynote address and host a workshop. A seasoned educator, researcher and speaker on Generation Z, her work has been featured on NPR and in the New York Times.
