Multi-Generational Differences: Bridging Learning Gap in the Classrooms

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Today’s undergraduates are increasingly more diverse than ever before. They are in many cases more technologically proficient than their faculty. The discrepancy in the level of technological proficiency has created a major challenge in the learning process in higher education. The circumstances are caused by differences in learning preferences among the multi-generational in today's college and university students. The Net Generation students exhibit distinct learning preferences; while the Baby Boomers and Gen X lecturers are still implementing boring unmotivated, disinterested, and disengaged teaching styles. Despite their being digitally literate, the Net Generations are still lacking in the academic literacy skills that are the foundation of further success in school and in adult life. Therefore, this paper focuses on multi-generational differences in bridging learning gap in the classrooms.
