Concept mapping (as developed by Joe Novak) has been shown to be a versatile tool that can be used in any discipline as a study-aid, a revision tool and a research tool. It is a graphic technique that requires the ‘mapper’ to make links between ideas explicit and so reveal their quality of understanding.
The process of mapping is very simple to learn, but takes considerable mental effort to produce excellent maps. It can be used in class or as a ‘homework activity’ and can also be used to stimulate high level dialogue about a subject. Concept maps can be used to diagnose student misconceptions and/or reveal the variety of perspectives that may be hidden within a cohort of students.
The session will take you through the steps of producing a map and then go on to consider applications that you may explore in your teaching.
