Thursday 16 December 2010, 10:00-11:30
Think Lab, 7th Floor Maxwel Building, The University of Salford
The aim of this session is to 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 related techniques (such as Concept Mapping, Idea Mapping, etc.) and their pertinence in research contexts.
This session will:
Introduce participants to the principles of orthodox mind mapping as defined by Tony Buzan, in Use Your Head (London: BBC, 1974), and later The Mind Map Book (London: BBC, 1993).
Give the opportunity to experiment with mind mapping techniques through a practical exercise.
Review other visual mapping techniques which have evolved from orthodox mind mapping (other forms of mind mapping, concept mapping, idea mapping, argument mapping).
Highlight the effectiveness of visual mapping techniques through the presentation of a number of examples of maps.
Show how researchers can fruitfully use a visual map as a thinking space, both individually and collaboratively.
Discuss the potential of visual mapping for remote collaboration, through web-based applications.
Provide a review of the most pertinent software available both as desktop applications and as online applications.
