Millennials are the students who were born from 1982 to 1994. Ririn explained that the characteristics of those generations are; tech savvy, is someone who is really keen about modern technology; and also group oriented who prioritized a group of friends, so that they tend to be easily affected; and they are the generation who tend to refuse ideas or theories that they think is outdated.

 

According to that characteristic, Ririn gives a method to teachers on how to approach millennial generations with 4R methods, such as;

 

Research, need to understand what method of technology for an active learning method. For instance, fewer lectures and more multimedia. To sum up what is the effective learning or best methods for students. This point is emphasizing to do the research first to know what the excellent methods are.

 

Relevance, the challenge is the question; are the courses still relevant with the current condition or culture. Are the courses still useful and up to date?

 

Rapport, millennials are concerned about relation group. This tendency is shown with the fondness of a friendship in a group. So that they feel connected and appreciate it when teachers show the same interest.
