Visual mapping can help in organizing ideas, communicating clearly and planning the future. Academics can find visualization very useful for their work, in particular:
– for notetaking: i.e., with mindmapping or with the Cornell notes template – divide the page into 3 sections: keywords, notes and summary
– for mapping your audience (see example )
– for organizing the themes of your literature review in a matrix structure
-and finally for gettings things done by making your plans visible to everyone (i.e., sketching your goals on a whiteboard)
Thanks Sebastian for the references!
