Dear Fellow Deans,
Within the next few days, we will be welcoming our new batch of first-year students. This class was born in—hold it—as recently as 1999! The smartphone, Facebook, Amazon Prime, iCloud and selfies have always been integral to their lives. Here, as elsewhere, we are trying to figure out how this generation learns and what would be the most effective ways to connect meaningfully with them. Do let us know what has been working for you.
Rajib Sanyal, Ph.D.
