How to get there

The aim of this presentation will be to briefly introduce participants to the principles and practice of the mapping of ideas and concepts. By the end of this session participants will have developed a basic awareness of Mind Mapping and Concept Mapping and their pertinence in research contexts.

This session will:

  • Introduce participants to the principles of both Mind Mapping and Concept Mapping
  • Show how researchers can fruitfully use either, or both, a Mind Map & a Concept Map as a thinking space, both individually and collaboratively.
  • Present a number of examples of maps and templates used in a research context.

Mindmanager GTD templates

I recently had to use a backup of this blog to re-import its content. As a result some of the links are no longer working, but I do not have time to check them at the moment. If you are looking for the Mindmanager GTD templates I released ages ago, you can find them at the following address: http://pascalvenier.com/1.zip

This blog is not dead but only sleeping!

I have been very busy cranking academic widgets and have been too busy to blog!

Among my most recent experiments in personal productivity have been the following:

  • I have completely switched over to a free mind-mapping software, Compendium, which is quite a wonderful tool, allowing to create mind-maps inside each node of a mind-map! [Update (31 August 2008): The experiment was an interesting one, however I am now back to using a combination of PersonalBrain and MindManager/MindMeister]
  • I am now using Nozbe for my GTD implementation, which I wholeheartedly recommend. [Update (31 August 2008): I now track the different levels of focus online, using MindMeister, the online mind-mapping software. I have uploaded my MindManager template in MindMeister, and created links from project nodes in MindMeister to each individual project page in Nozbe. I currently preparing a post with screenshots explaining how I go about it.]

I hope to publish a detailed post on each.

I also have come across a most intriguing piece of kit, which I would be very curious to try. It is designed to “enable people to create effective and enjoyable workshops” and is named Thinkit.
