MY MAJOR IS CIVIL ENGINEERING
This is for advanced researchers, but you still should get the idea of how you can find them as well. For the next blog post then, you are required to find three hot topics or current trends in your field. When deciding on which topics to highlight, keep in mind that we will potentially use these as topics/ subject matter for your research proposal which will start after the break. In other words, take your time deciding which topics to detail in the post. Think about a topic you would like to explore for your research project.
You can simply perform a google search: â€œHot topics philosophyâ€ â€œCurrent trends biologyâ€. Basic searches like this may have decent results.
The blog post should include:
- An introduction explaining why it is important to know current trends and how to stay up to date. You can relate this back to your previous posts.
- You must then describe three current trends in your field.
- For each trend please provide a brief description of the topic and why it is important.
- Where you discovered it, e.g. in class, in a journal, in a blog post etc.
- Any researchers who have worked on it in the past or currently. If you have a name of an article or articles, please include it/them. Provide links whenever possible.
- Why the topic has become important? Technological developments, new approaches to the subject, political developments, and/or current events dictate new developments, etc.
- A closing that wraps up your post.
