About the SOCHE ED Workshop: Generation Z in the Digital Age

During this interactive workshop/action planning session participants will learn more about Generation Z in the Digital Age. We will start the event off by hearing from Dr. Corey Seemiller about Generation Z, those born from 1995 to 2010. After Dr. Seemiller's keynote participants will be broken up into small groups to prepare for a highly interactive action planning session around Generation Z in the Digital Age. The action planning session will encourage participants to discuss and strategize how to implement policies, programs, and practices that support Generation Z in the digital age.

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?
