Millennial learners are young professionals born in the years from the early 1980s through the early 2000s. They often communicate through multi-media, text and instant messaging. They describe themselves as highly collaborative and ambitious individuals who thrive in online social environments. They are multi-taskers, self-learners, resourceful and very comfortable with technology. Millennials want learning experiences that are available anytime and anywhere.
As the largest generation in our nation’s history, the millennial generation holds important implications as to how organizations will enhance their training modalities to meet the needs of the ever changing work force. As we strive to create the most effective learning experience possible for our Millennials, we must evaluate which learning style will be most effective.
