Monday, March 16, 2020
10:30 AM – 11:30 AM
Each generation brings with it a new set of attitudes, behaviors and beliefs. Just as we, dental educators, thought we were beginning to understand Millennials, a new generation has forced us into uncharted territory yet again. Generation Z (Gen Z) students, born between 1996 and 2010, are just now beginning to enter dental school. As educators, we have the responsibility to adapt our teaching methods to reach this unique generation. This session will reveal surprising differences between Millennials and Gen Z students that impact the way they process information. In addition, current Gen Z students will provide insight from their personal experiences.
Distinguish differences between Millennials and generation Z.
Describe the advantages and challenges to teaching individuals in generation Z.
Implement strategies to effectively teach generation Z students in the classroom and clinic.
