Abstract

On any given day, on college and university campuses across the United States, four generations bump up against each other. Some are shocked and outraged by the attitudes and demands of the newest generation; others are dazed, stunned, and even offended by the conventions and expectations of an earlier generation. Three generations of college professors are facing perceived irrelevance by the newest generation to hit the scene. This article addresses generational differences between today’s students and those who teach them. Research and recommended practice to build on the strengths and learning needs for students and future professionals in communication sciences and disorders are discussed.
