Millennial Expectations, Constructivist Theory, and Changes in a Teacher Preparation Course
Carter, Timothy L.
SRATE Journal, v18 n1 p25-31 Win 2008-2009
The Millennial Generation (born [asymptotically equivalent to]1982-2002) is now well represented in the university setting. This cohort has its own unique expectations that are in many ways aligned with constructivist propositions of learning. These Millennial expectations will likely necessitate changes in instructional approaches used in the university environment. This paper considers such changes that were made in a six-hour secondary education course, which serves as the methods and assessment course that all students, regardless of academic major, complete in one university's secondary education program. By applying constructivist propositions and by considering Millennial Generation expectations, several revisions to this six-hour course were implemented.
