Who is coming to college after the Millennials?

How did you figure out the Millennials? I found the following book

Howe, N., & Strauss, W. (2000). Millennials rising : the next great generation /by Neil Howe and Bill Strauss ; cartoons by R.J. Matson. New York : Vintage Books, 2000. http://smallbiztrends.com/2009/09/33-useful-presentation-tools.html#!

very helpful. Here is more about their “generational theory”

The Millennials are gradually graduating and a new generation is entering our higher education.

If you are interested to learn about the 2017-2020 graduates at college and adjust your teaching practices to their habits, understandings etc., here is a helpful book:

Levine, A., Levine, A., & Dean, D. R. (2012). Generation on a Tightrope : A Portrait of Today’s College Student. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass.
