Millennial Conference Highlights!

On Friday, I attended a conference that was focused on teaching millennial students. As a millennial and as a researcher on millennial issues, I was very pleased with the content that was presented in the workshops and the keynote speech.

During the conference, the following topics were addressed:

  • Virtual Textbooks

  • Social Networking Websites

  • Instant Messenger & Virtual Office Hours (My Workshop)

  • Usage of Wikipedia in Student Research

  • Usage of YouTube in the Classroom

  • Blackboard

  • Usage of U.S. Census Website in the Classroom

  • Why College Students Do Not Read Textbooks

  • Podcasting Lectures

  • Text Messenging in the Classroom

  • Academic Integrity of Millennial Students

  • The Millennial Mindset List (Beloit)

  • Twitter and Skype in the Classroom

Overall, the conference was very interesting and I hope that the university continues to offer such informative and intriguing information to the faculty and staff.

As a millennial professor, I was inspired to continue my research and to spread knowledge to other professors about my interesting generation.
