Faculty or All-College Workshop

During the faculty-only workshop, faculty members are split up into eight groups to discuss specific issues that occur in the classroom involving millennial students.  Each group is given two brief articles to read (about 20 minutes) and then they discuss scenarios and answer a set of questions about the following topics:

  • Critical thinking and analytical reasoning
  • Plagiarism, cheating and ethics
  • Teaching the millennial
  • Class and institutional policies
  • Millennials and the workforce
  • Student services needs of millennials
  • First generation, less prepared students
  • Diversity in the classroom

The workshop can take two to three hours, depending on time constraints.  After faculty have heard the morning session and have begun to understand the motivations and expectations of millennial students, they are ready to talk and begin to address issues.  This workshop is the perfect ending for the day and gives colleges the foundation to launch into deeper discussions in the weeks following the workshop.

If you choose to conduct an all college workshop, there are additional scenarios for the following areas:

  • Students Services
  • Library Staff
  • Administrators/HR
  • Financial Services Staff
