Online skill development for Generation Y students : a case study of an online negotiation model for external law students
Carver, Tracey L. & Cockburn, Tina (2007) Online skill development for Generation Y students : a case study of an online negotiation model for external law students. The International Journal of Learning, 13(12), pp. 81-90.
The majority of undergraduate students attending Australian universities now belong to Generation Y, and bring with them a unique outlook shaped by the social, political and cultural context of their childhood years. This change in outlook brings with it a shift in learning preferences, so to ensure a more effective learning environment for Generation Y students, learning and teaching strategies must adapt to address these preferences. In particular, research has shown that Generation Y learners favour experimental activities, the use of technology, structure and teamwork. This pedagogy has been adopted in the development of an interactive online model which adapts chat room technology to increase flexibility for external law students engaged in the development of negotiation skills in the undergraduate law unit, Trusts, at the Queensland University of Technology.
