In this episode, the instructional designers from CONHI’s Academic Innovation (Jinnette Senecal, Celia Coochwytewa, and Aaron Kraft) discuss the characteristics of concept maps, mind maps, and other forms of information visualization, and consider how they might be implemented in the higher education environment. We then explore the variations in terminology, style, and application tools and strategies.
