Narcissistic, lazy, and overly confident – this is the way some see the new generation of young people starting to go to our universities. According to teacher Lynn Van Der Wagan, who sparked an online debate recently with this article, members of "Generation I" form strong opinions without enough knowledge and are reluctant to work. Reactions to her article – mostly in agreement – came in thick and fast. As I take an interest in who will be next in my class, Van Der Wagan’s provocation has prompted a few thoughts of my own on how to approach teaching this new generation.
