My generation, your generation: We're all in this together

Presenter Dr. Mark Milliron, Suanne Davis Roueche Endowed Fellow, Senior Lecturer, and Director of the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) in the College of Education, University of Texas-Austin

Abstract The mix of millennials, gen-x'ers, baby boomers, and more make the provision of modern education a complex process. Mobile devices, simulations and educational games, social networking, and analytics bring new and challenging learning environments to distance education. With each generation, instructors have faced blending past educational research and best practice with current learner needs and future employer demands. But the process and pace at which we construct the new generation of learning is different today. Past instructors have faced the blending process once, perhaps twice, in their careers. Now learners and employers are more directly involved in defining learning goals and strategies to successfully achieve these. Thus, instructors are faced with continual blending of past, present, and future. What is ahead? How much change can we take? How do we retain our human touch? Come join this conversation about the new generation of learning taking shape.
