What “Millennials” Demand from Education

My recent experience teaching a graduate level course that I have taught for 10 years is somewhat different. Many of my students consider themselves “consumers” and therefore get to pick and choose how they would participate in class, how they would communicate with me and were free to discount the course content as irrelevant.

Although the University has a robust web based web based service system including discussion boards and video conferencing, unless I posted to YouTube most would ignore any class communications through that system.

While teaching a technique on how to determine if their idea was innovative, I had one student claim, “What makes you think we are not innovative?”

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
