Title: A Demographic Look at the Near Future: The Next America
Presenter(s) Info: Paul Taylor, Researcher and Author
Paul Taylor is the author of The Next America: Boomers, Millennials, and the Looming Generational Showdown, which examines generations and the country’s changing demographics. Drawing on The Pew Research Center’s extensive archive of public opinion surveys and demographic data, Taylor will provide insight on where we are as a nation and where we’re headed—toward a future marked by the most striking social, racial, and economic shifts the country has seen in a century. The balance of births, deaths and immigration/emigration patterns has an effect on the labor force, economic vitality, community leadership, educational attainment and sustainability, and potential clashes between generations.
Understand major demographic changes, and why there are there such differences between the generations in America.
Explore technology as leading the generational gap.
Explore the attitudes younger generations have about college and educational attainment, and the long-term impacts that can be anticipated related to college attendance, persistence, and completion from recent generational experiences.
Discuss how understanding generational characteristics can help us in future integrated planning to inform our approaches to teaching and learning, serving students, and the design of their built environment.
