Meeting Them Where They Are: A New Paradigm to Train Generation Z & Younger Millennials
Tuesday April 30th 2024
Are you tasked with training our colleagues, trainees or new and recent employees? Do you feel as if you need to learn a few new tricks to better engage and interact with these “students”?
Sign up for this workshop to learn strategies to improve your facilitatation skills.
We will first examine the communication needs and styles of younger Millennials and Generation Z and compare these needs and styles to those preferred by Generation X and Boomer generations. By the end of this session, you will be able to implement free and easy to use teaching technology tools, and your presentations will result in a livelier and more engaging experience for both you and your students!
