Visions of Students Today: A Message from the Editors
Wentzell, G. W.; Richlin, L.; Cox. M. D.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v23 n4 p1-3 2012
In Michael Wesch's (2007) now widely seen video "A Vision of Students Today" (, a camera pans across a large, traditional classroom where college students hold up messages about themselves as members of the current generation of learners, who have been dubbed Millennials (Howe & Strauss, 2000). The video captures some of the most notable characteristics of students today--their learning styles and needs, their hopes and dreams, and the changes they can expect to see during their lifetimes. What emerges clearly from the video is a disconnect between what and how students today often are taught and what and how they want and need to learn.
