  1. Thanks for keeping this blog alive, sorry I’ve been tardy. Mind maps are great for summarising information but I find difficult to understand other people’s maps if I don’t have the background information. In teaching, it is useful to have the story and visuals to go with it, to give students space, time, and people relations quickly. Other disciplines have developed sophisticated diagram type vocabularies, for example, system design have data flow diagrams, flowcharts etc. The Law discipline should aim at creating their own tools for mind-mapping which we can then use as convention. But also use m-maps as crude mental models for studying as this is also important for developing good longterm memories.

    I think it is really marvellous that Kris is exploring these ideas in pedagogy and learning. Law suffers from the lack of visual tools because it’s foundations are based on verbal abilities, not multiple intelligences and abilities. We use other people’s models and we teach nothing about modelling, we think that ability to draw, cannot be taught. Anyway, with software anyone can develop their right brain.

    Mental maps for Ethics and PR would help as many lawyers suffer from moral sense and quick charts could save their careers; sometimes ethical dilemmas are not easy to resolve. I know you probably have another blog page for this area :).

  2. Mind maps for teaching law are just fabulous. With a couple of words they prompt better analysis even as they are printed out. I know some academics dislike their simplicity but really if the law faculty insists on one giving their best in a 2 hour exam with no reading time well you know the rest I suppose. In with a distinction out with a credit.
    On reflection mind maps are way more constructive than attempting to place a case analysis or a set of complex concepts on a powerpoint slide show. Perhaps they could make a valuable contribution to keeping Law School face to face as opposed to online.
