The Generation Z Student
It is safe to say that gen Z members will have more than one “life” identity. This includes their normal, human identities; their social media identities; their virtual gaming identities; and in some instances, their avatar identities.

Generation Y - Adult Learning
Gen Y’s technology savvy creates a portal to new ways of gaining knowledge and communicating with individuals from around the world, thus producing an ethnically diverse virtual environment.

Understanding the Generation X Student
Generation X, commonly referred to as Gen-X, the Pacman Generation, Millennials, or the post-baby boomer generation, were born between 1961 and 1981. Generation X is smaller in population than the baby boomer generation but is considered to be better educated and more ethnically diverse.

Understanding the Baby Boomer Student
Baby boomers were born between 1946 and 1964 and adopted their name because more babies were born in the year 1946 than ever before. This was a result of couples postponing marriage and childbirth during the Great Depression and World War II.

Have you ever heard of Self-Directed Learning? If you have ever participated in a distance learning program, then you might be familiar with self-directed learning.

Pedagogy, Andragogy, and Technology
In the past century, methods of learning and teaching have been affected greatly by a number of factors including economic changes, cultural changes, technological innovations, and globalization.

Classroom Introductions
Whether teaching an online or on-campus class, there is one essential factor of which all instructors must be aware—namely, the importance of effective introductions on the first day of class.

Professional Development for Online Instructors
Whatever your reasons may be, once you become an online adjunct instructor, there are certain requirements that will be expected of you in addition to your teaching responsibilities.

What Is Your Intelligence Strength?
Throughout your experience as an instructor, you will always have some students who excel in a particular subject with minimal effort while others seem to struggle no matter how hard they try. In 1983, Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard University identified different intelligences.

Understanding Learning Styles
As an online instructor, you are faced with the challenge of providing education to students who may come from a variety of age groups and cultures. Selecting the best teaching techniques to employ in such an environment demands an understanding of how individuals learn.
