Determined. Innovative. Confident. 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, Generation Z brings a whole new set of attributes and experiences to higher education. But, our structures, curriculum, environments, processes, and pedagogies were likely developed with previous generations in mind. This new cadre of students will challenge us to re-conceptualize our institutions to ensure we are providing the most meaningful and effective learning and engagement experiences possible. How are we prepared to adapt to this changing demographic and reframe our practice to effectively engage Generation Z students in learning and development during their time in higher education?
