Mind mapping, critical thinking, teaching strategy


Academicians are always trying to answer the question, “What is the most effective way to teach?” Finding the answer to this question is no easy task but recognizing that each teachable moment must be shaped based upon the learner, task, and the environment enable the academician to consider viable teaching strategies that would promote the learning goals. The purposes of this paper are first, to describe one teaching strategy “Mind Mapping Learning Technique (MMLT)”; second, to provide an understanding of how the MMLT is used to promote critical thinking skills in graduate students; and finally, to assess students perceptions regarding the use of the mind mapping learning technique as a tool to enable them to better organize, prioritize, and integrate material presented in a course.
