National Seminar Series: Intergenerational Learning February 13th 2015

The seminar focused on how best to understand and engage intergenerational learners. For the first time in working history, we now have 4 different generations working together. This has created lots of challenges in relation to management, leadership and team dynamics. The seminar focused on the challenges and opportunities of having a mix of generations learning together. Strategies to enhance engagement levels, with a particular focus on ‘Generation Y’ were explored. The session took the format of a facilitated workshop with lots of peer sharing and learning.
