Northeast Ohio Regional Library System

Event Name:Generational Learning Styles 101
Competency:Staff Training, Patron Awareness and Instruction
Description:Millennials, Gen X, Baby Boomers: these terms can bring to mind both good and bad characteristics and personal attributes that may automatically influence the way we interact with clients and coworkers. This session will discuss some of the common age-based stereotypes and the way they can influence learning situations and workplace interactions. Different ways to (and not to) think about common situations will be presented so as to break down and prevent prejudices that might exist in your institution.

Learning Objectives
  • Learn the traditional differences in learning styles according to generational groups
  • Learn how to accommodate generational learning styles one-on-one and for a group
  • Learn how to accommodate the generational learning styles of library staff for training purposes
  • Learn how to accommodate learning styles in a virtual environment.
