We often get caught up in the daily minutiae of life and forget that the world around us does not stop moving. Regardless of what is happens in our personal lives, businesses, cultures, and technology are continually evolving. Comparing our current life to what it once was could positively or negatively impact our future decisions. Likewise, comparing the world to what it once was can have a similar impact on our decisions, especially in today's era.
In a current and ongoing research study, “A Virtual Environment. A Generational Preference,” I look to unearth the desire to work and/or learn in a virtual setting. In the technologically driven era we live in today, the need for a virtual setting in both educational and corporate institutions has skyrocketed. So, the question is not whether it is needed, but instead an understanding if individuals would rather learn and/or work in a remote environment. The research survey being conducted seeks to understand if a correlation exists between the desire to learn and/or work remotely based on an individual's generational age.
Participants in the current study include current or former college students from different generations in various fields. The single questionnaire is optional, voluntary, and anonymous. If you would be willing to make a short announcement in your current class(es) asking for student participation in the present study, please contact me for further information. Furthermore, if you would like to discuss possible research initiatives, speaking engagements, publications, general comments, or ideas of interest, please contact me anytime at email@example.com
