Spotlight on Gen Z Agency, Voice and Career Choice

GenZ—a generation like no other. Directives are unpopular with them. In fact, 67% of Gen Z say they don’t want to be told what to do in planning their futures. Rather, they want student agency, voice, and choice. So, how do we accommodate learners so they are ready to tackle whatever the future brings? Start by understanding the research behind how this generation prefers to learn and then providing them with the opportunity to navigate their own career path through authentic learning experiences. Learn how challenges like ASA Solve Together and career education programs are motivating students in and out of the classroom. Also, hear from companies that are putting students at the center of their education so they can learn what they want to learn, how they want to learn–ascribing value and agency to both educator and learner roles.
