The Teaching, Learning and Technology Center invites all faculty to attend our upcoming winter workshop series, designed to provide tools and strategies that maximize student engagement. This three-day, virtual series will cover a variety of topics, such as technology tools and essentials, best practices for engaging Gen Z, and the use of Adobe to promote digital literacy and innovation in the classroom. Each of the three workshops will conclude with an open lab to allow participants the opportunity to practice the demonstrated tools and skills and receive individualized support from the presenter.

Day 3: Educating Gen Z

Our youngest students are part of Generation Z, known both for their technological savvy and their unique perspective on the world. Today’s sessions are intended to take a deeper dive into the distinguishing characteristics of Gen Z, their relationship to technology, and their educational expectations. Renee Robinson, Ph.D., will lead the discussion on tangible methods for engaging this generation in a higher education classroom, we will create transparent assignments together using the TILT method, and you will leave the day with a better understanding of the needs of this cohort.
