Background: Effective skill development remains an important vehicle for national prosperity.

Globally, it is becoming evident that the Millennials in higher education learn very differently than their predecessors Purpose: Our study provides comparisons on three learning parameters of learning affectivity, goal orientation and competition between Gen X & Millennials.. Methods: To study whether the learning attributes are similar or they differ across the two generations we compared the means of the three attributes under consideration. Results: We find Millennials to be different from Gen X across the three studied parameters suggesting that teaching pedagogies require a rethink for Millennials Conclusions: These results could be useful in designing appropriate teaching pedagogies that are likely to improve Millennials' learning.
