dc.description.abstract <p>Using controversial topics for teaching and learning has several benefits identified in the literature. Skills such as applying knowledge to real world applications, critical judgment and evaluation, social and ethical considerations, and oral and written communication are important learning outcomes of this practice. Utilizing several models of teaching and learning, this presentation will present the benefits of discussing controversial topics in the classroom, as well as strategies and challenges of handling these types of discussions with technology students.</p>
