Concept mapping in lectures.

Lavery, Janet and Low, Adam (2008) 'Concept mapping in lectures.', in 9th Annual Conference of the Subject Centre for Information and Computer Sciences : 26-28 August 2008, Liverpool, UK ; proceedings. Newtownabbey, Co Antrim: Higher Education Academy Subject Centre for Information and Computer Science, pp. 76-81.


Concept maps are an aid to a deep learning strategy. Developing concept maps would help students understand the relationships between concepts both within a domain and across related domains. To encourage students to explore the use of concept maps, we have integrated concept maps into a module’s lectures. We have trialled: a concept map developed by experts and given to students; another concept map developed collaboratively by the students in an interactive lecture supported by a free-text response system; and finally a concept map developed incrementally in a series of lectures.

Item Type:Book chapter
