Concept Mapping

This method is about understanding patterns of connection through holistic thinking. Nature consists of webs and networks of relationships. In these maps, relationships are shown as nodes with linkages.

A coherent set of nodes and relationships constitute a network, or a web, where the whole is more than the sum of the parts. Mapping this out reveals a pattern we can use to understand better; 1. what we are looking at, 2. what is going on, 3. how one thing will affect another.

If nodes are combined through strong links, the web has strength – it is stronger together as a whole than a single node or the sum of the nodes. Concept Mapping is a thinking Technique that helps us understand specific topics we are interested in. View PDF
