May 21, 2020 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Save the date for a lunchtime lecture with Dr. Geoffrey Talmon, Professor and Assistant Dean for Medical Education in the College of Medicine at the University of Nebraska Medical Center on Thursday, May 21st, 2020, 12:00 – 1:30 PM EST.
This Academy of Educators event is made possible by the generosity of the UNC Medical Alumni Foundation, in honor of Dr. Wesley “Butch” Fowler.
While the characteristics of Millennial learners have been widely discussed with regard to medical education, a new generation of learners will soon be entering health education: Generation Z. Despite their relative youth, a great deal is already known about this group. Although they share many similarities to their Millennial predecessors, key differences may have an impact on how Generation Z students’ preferences, perspectives, and motivations relate to professional training. This session will review the basics of the generations active in medical education today with particular focus on the characteristics of Generation Z students. Following this session, audience members will be able to:
- Differentiate characteristics of Millennial and Generation Z learners
- Discuss the impact of Generation Z students’ preferences and tendencies on medical education
- Develop potential strategies for better engaging Generation Z health professions students
