New Faculty Orientation

Brainstorming Exercise

  • Each group must decide on a research topic concerning climate change. It can go in whatever direction your group wishes to explore.
  • Use the White Boards to brainstorm and generate new ideas.
  • Try to think about ideas and issues that are related to your topic. This process will help you to zero in on your research topic, and the ideas you come up with can be used as keywords to search in your database.
