Carie Windham, Student Relations Specialist, EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative

The rise of the Millennials has spawned new conversations about engagement and learning on today’s college campuses. But what do these Net Gen learners really want? And what do they need to survive in a Web 2.0 world? From the mouth of a confessed Net junkie, learn what makes these students tick, what ticks them off, and what faculty and administrators need to know to bridge the generational divide. Carie Windham spoke at MSU on Jan. 10, 2008, sponsored by the MSU Teaching and Learning Committee.
