ABSTRACT

English teaching professionals dealing with students from all levels of education are reported to have faced challenges in meeting their students’ needs. Born into the world of information, the Millennials are comprised of digital learners who are comfortable using technology in their everyday life. Students’ predilection for technology is calling the educators to align their teaching strategies with students’ learning preference. This paper therefore looks at the challenges educators face in teaching the Millennials as well as the strategies adopted in meeting the needs of this new generation. The survey which involved a department of language lecturers provides further insights into the discourse of teaching and learning in higher learning institutions.
