The Landscape of Academic Disciplines is a random landscape of terms about a branch of knowledge which is formally taught, either at the university, or via some other such method.

Functionally, disciplines are usually defined and recognized by the academic journals in which research is published, and the learned societies to which their practitioners belong.
Most academic departments are organized around an academic discipline. Some departments contain more than one discipline (the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, for example).

Keep moving forward with a degree online. Earn your bachelor’s, master’s or Ph.D. from an online accredited university.

This brainstorming technique is a mental exercise for producing ideas by right brain thinking (random, visual, subjective, emotional, holistic, intuitive, creative, divergent).

Brainstorming is a group creativity technique by which a group tries to find a solution for a specific problem by gathering a list of ideas spontaneously contributed by its members. The term was popularized by Alex Faickney Osborn in 1953 through the book Applied Imagination. In the book, Osborn not only proposed the brainstorming method but also established effective rules for hosting brainstorming sessions.
