Furniture for the Millennial Student

Filed under: Faculty Professional Development — Lela Mac @ 1:08 pm

“Text, Twitter, Podcasting”… Millenials are adept at filtering information and making snap decisions.. multi-tasking.
A really good book that was recommended during this presentation, “Shift Happens” by Fisch. We’ll have to check it out!
Studies have shown that if students and faculty are attracted/comfortable with spaces used for learning.. it actually raises the retention rate. This is why Steelcase is focusing on today’s Millennial student and their way of learning/communicating (texting, computers, social interaction, groups..) Also, important to note, is that learning takes place everywhere (hallways, lobbies, student centers..).
