Kendall, Catherine; Etheredge, Jessica; Moody, Dana; Cooper, Ashley
Journal of Learning in Higher Education, v10 n1 p53-58 Spr 2014
The ability to work in groups is fundamental to education and professional environments. Today's classrooms are predominately filled with Millennials who have been working in teams their whole lives. Millennials enjoy group work because it is perceived as more fun and gives them a sense of unity and collaboration; unfortunately, it also gives them a way to avoid risks (Alsop, 2008). So, how do characteristics and learning styles of Millennials affect group work? As educators generally stemming from the Baby Boomer and Gen X generations, many instructors are either unaware or misinformed on effective grouping strategies for Millennials. This paper explores the fundamentals differences of Millennials and how they translate into strategies for successful group work.
