In this fast paced technology driven world where changes are happening, Higher Education Institutions are no exception. The task of engaging Post Millennial University students (Generation Z) in the learning process is proving to be a challenge and has evolved as an Art. Generation Z students are vibrant and prefer to explore new avenues and do not prefer to be within the four walls and also be exposed to traditional teaching. They disengage fairly quickly, if not actively engaged in the education process. Though many complain Gen Z as lethargic, not attentive, least bothered, but in reality they are active, attentive and responsible generation. They are motivated to indulge in experiential learning and engage in avenues of specific interest. Post Millennials appreciate and indulge in activities which add value and ignore things that don‘t add value.
