Abstract: This report considers and comments upon current demands on university faculty. This is achieved by reporting upon the purpose of a university education and the role of faculty. Students at university are now of a generation that has grown up with the internet and use it in all parts of their lives. Generation Z students have several characteristics which might affect the way they learn and need to be considered. Employers are seeking graduates with different types of skills than a decade ago. University faculty need to teach and assess such skills alongside technical content of the course discipline. Examples are given of how this might be achieved within the accounting discipline. The discussion proposes possible ways of managing the various influences on a university course by using the resources available to prepare students for the world of work and a civil society.
Keywords: generation z, teaching and learning, assessment, skills
