D.E.L. Awareness SIG
Oct 24 – “Adult Learners and Generational Differences” with MEA’s own Marian Ward Vallotton as well as Cheryl Hagerty and Jason L. James, Jr.
Do you sometimes wonder why you’re just not getting through to one or more of your class participants? It might just be because of differences due to a generational gap. For the first time in history, employers are challenged with meeting the different needs of four generations in the workplace. In order to help prevent misunderstandings and conflicts, it is critical to understand the differences within each generation. Please join us for an engaging panel discussion as we explore generational preferences regarding learning and communication styles and motivation.
