Event Description

Research shows that millennial college students have very low tolerance for delay, expect immediate feedback and recognition, crave structure, and do not like ambiguity—traits that sometimes run counter to traditional teaching strategies. Gain a better understanding of what motivates millennial college students at Illinois State based on the findings of a university-wide student survey. You will be able to identify the gap between your perception of millennial college students’ study habits and motivators and the actual ones reported by students in the survey. You’ll also develop ways to adapt the existing teaching strategies and turn them into effective teaching tools to maintain millennials’ interest and attention. A stipend is available for eligible participants. Registration is required.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
