Getting Started: Create a Concept Map

Concept mapping (also called 'mind mapping' )  is a great way to, explore different aspects of your topic narrow or broaden a topic, or create a list of keywords you can use to search for sources on your topic.    Consider the following questions to start generating content for your concept map:

  • What about the topic is interesting?
  • Why is this topic important? 
  • What are the challenges of the topic? 
  • Can you focus this topic by a group of people,  place, time period, perspective or point of view?
