Abstract

Constructive Academic Controversy has been available as part of the repertoire of engineering faculty since the early 1980's. In this paper we strive to update and revitalize the approach through: 1) reviewing the development of Academic Constructive Controversy including the benefits of this type of cooperative learning approach, 2) providing instructional references and resources, and 3) reviewing current case examples in both engineering and engineering education classrooms.
