Developing Effective Education for the Next Generation

Next generation is coming -- are educators ready? Each generation is shaped by its cultural experiences, leading to characteristic preferences for learning. This four-hour workshop will equip educators with teaching methods to engage the Gen Z learners who will increasingly comprise emergency medicine trainees. In small groups, educators will discover, discuss and apply strategies to manage common instructional challenges arising from Gen Z learning expectations, with an emphasis on simulation’s unique pedagogical strengths for this learner group.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Compare and contrast the unique behavioral characteristics of Generation Z with prior generations of learners

  • Describe the impact of Gen Z learner preferences on their attitudes and expectations regarding medical education

  • Choose medical education strategies to optimize learning and engagement among Gen Z learners

  • Apply identified strategies to raise the impact of simulation education for Gen Z learners in small group format
