discussion assignment

Discussion 1: Consensus and Controversy


What are the areas of controversy or debate within your field?

What are the “open questions”?

What do scholars and experts in your field argue about?

Most research is done on the controversies, not the consensus.

To find discussions of such issues, you can look into any academic journal in your field.  Such articles, however, will be highly technical.  To find less technical discussions, look in popular magazines or online in blogs and news sites.

Be aware, though, that online sources can be unreliable, and may include issues which seem controversial to those outside of a field, but are not controversial to experts


This assignment doesn’t have specific number of words, but this is going to be a discussion post so it shouldn’t be that long, just one paragraph is enough. the topic is going to be realted to electrical engineering.
