About This Class

76e8c186

Insight mapping is a variation of concept mapping that focuses on eliciting and documenting insights from any given event, activity or experience.  It can be used by individuals, in support of team work, or by entire organizations.  This class is a short introduction to insight mapping for individuals.

We all make mistakes and mistakes are an important avenue for learning.  Have you ever felt that you seemed to be repeating mistakes you'd previous made?  Albert Einstein noted that insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting different results.  Would you like to try a new approach that could help you better leverage your own experience.  Insight mapping provides a simple and relatively quick way of reflecting upon an event, activity or experience, and drawing out key insights that can help you move forward in a more productive way so that you do not repeat mistakes.

The class includes short videos which will guide you through the creation of your own insight map and some sample maps.

No special software is required for you to complete the project.  If you wish to use concept mapping software, some advice will be provided or you can use whatever software you are already familiar with.

Barbara's idea of overtly noting insights on concept maps is itself insightful and a useful addition to the repertoire of work concept maps can do!

Learning junkie. Map Maven. Insight seeker, gatherer and connector. Mom, recreational bicyclist, amateur juggler, expresso lover.

I plan on soaking up the learning on Skillshare and sharing my interest in mapping and learning with a course titled "Insight Mapping 101," which is about using concept mapping to support reflection and learning by documenting personal insights (aha! moments that make learning so much fun).

In the real world of work and daily routines, I work at NASA.  I'm a Knowledge Management practitioner.  I help NASA missions to pause, reflect, and capture their lessons so that they can learn from their experience and other projects can learn from them. That's where I learned to use concept mapping to support team and organizational learning.  Now I also want to share that technique with others who can use it to support any type of individual or group learning.
