Generate>Capture>Share >Assess>Apply • System maps are visual representations of your knowledge domain, where proximity and connections between entities are used to express the relationships between them. System maps can be descriptive or conceptual. • Mind maps or concept maps are examples of the more conceptual system maps. So are process maps. All of these maps help to organize concepts and entities, and they are often used to communicate the key …vocabulary of your domain.

(SDC Knowledge Toolkit) Group Concept Maps* Novak 1970. Group ideas visualized about specific topic of interest. Structured. Brainstorming, Relational. Participatory. Multiple ideas. Learning/Research in given topic/context. Concept Maps Trokim 1980s. Capture and archive expert tacit knowledge concepts graphically. Gaps easy to spot and revisit with SME. Mind Maps Buzan 1970s.

Concept Mapping as KM Tool Tacit and Explicit Transformed in Context Assess
Group Concept Mapping Can transform understanding of complex issues and processes and be visually memorable for tacit and explicit capture and application.
“…a good concept map is at once simple, but also elegantly complex with profound meanings. Concept mapping has been shown to help learners learn, researchers create new knowledge, administrators to better structure and manage organizations, writers to write, and evaluators assess learning.” Revised January 22, 2008.

Components What Are Group Concept Maps? • Graphical tools for organizing and visualizing knowledge • Based on concepts and the relationships links by connecting lines • Linking words or phrases describe the relationship between two concepts • 2-dimensional node-links depict most important concepts and relationships • Hierarchical • Context established by “Focus Question” and how knowledge and learning is being applied • Cross-links show relationships to concepts in different segments or domains on the map – crucial to the creation, realization and application of new knowledge • Can include specific examples of events or objects that clarify of a given concept http://www.cmu.edu/teaching/assessment/howto/assesslearning/conceptmaps.html

Benefits • Depict complex tacit and explicit knowledge and context • Reflect how separate facets integrate or influence outcomes • Connect and display areas of influence, challenges • Illustrate concepts, process and knowledge flow around “Focus Question” • Promote new knowledge and learning apply for improved outcomes • Temporal, artifact, iterative
