Abstract

The article features the research conducted by Dean Tjosvold of Lingnan University regarding constructive controversy in Hong Kong. It revealed that communities of scientists develop common methods to understand common issues wherein they use various theories and processes to make incremental processes while instructors and students express opposing perspectives in their ideas and cases. But the differences in opinion do not promote understanding and learning and controversy must be managed properly to become constructive.
