- The first place to go for project
ideas is the list of Suggested
Future Topics on this site. Be sure to look over the "Top Ten Most
Wanted List" for some particularly promising ideas.
- A second source of ideas is the existing
projects on the ECE site. You'll often find that reading through
someone else's work will spark your own interest in topics that might
not have occurred to you otherwise. While you won't want to duplicate
another project's topic, you might well stumble upon an intriguing sub-topic
that deserves a project of its own.
- A third way of brainstorming ideas
is to look over the course syllabus and think about our readings and
discussions to date. What ideas and questions particularly interest
you? What puzzles you? What issues and problems pique your curiosity?
Which claims need more explanation and support? Often, finding the right
topic is a matter of Asking
the right questions. Here's a list of questions that can help you
generate ideas. (Researchpaper.com)
- Once you've found a topic you're interested
in, it's time to focus it to a manageable scope. Here's a quick guide
your topic. (The English Department at the University of Victoria)
