The Millennial (Generation Y) Students’ Perception of Teaching Effectiveness: A Case of a Tier-One U.S. Midwestern University


The purpose of this study was to identify the selected Rosenshine and Furst (1971) factors that influence Millennial (Generation Y) student learning, and the influence of those factors and other background variables on students’ evaluations of teaching. The result indicates that the ten factors adapted from Rosenshine and Furst (1971) studies were perceived by Generation Y students to positively influence their learning. The result also indicates that great teaching skills favor good evaluation. However, students’ evaluations of teaching are a lot better when instructors combine great teaching skills with great personality, less workload, flexibility and friendliness.
