My generation… The youngest generations… Your generation…These expressions are often used to refer to shared perceptions and interpretations of the world that may bring people together or, at times, keep them apart. This webinar will connect generational theory to the online ELT class and reveal some interesting ‘whys’ behind students’ and teachers’ recurrent behavior worldwide. Attendees will be led to recognize their own generational teaching and learning barriers and find result-oriented ways of overcoming them in search of enhanced learning results. Participants’ specific take-away will include student-proven strategies to choose, grade, adapt and design class activities in a generationally-friendly approach to unleash their teaching potential and facilitate online learning.
