The millennial generation learns differently than previous ones. They have a high level of learning agility and curiosity. But, this advantage is matched with an equally high level of emotional fragility—a state that short-circuits their ability to make decisions and access their own intuition. I am concerned about the internal and external pressures that my students experience—the ones that influence the way they learn. I look forward to sharing my research with you and your viewers.
