Transcript of What's in Your Mind? Using Idea Mapping to Teach Evaluation

Cognitive research: when we learn we use information and knowledge to BUILD MENTAL MAPS of the issue in question
Allows development and (re)organization of ideas, based on synthesis of multiple sources
Maps that synthesize sources
Teachers' role is to ensure that students develop mental maps that are COMPREHENSIVE and LOGICAL
We believe that fundamental skill is ABILITY TO ORGANIZE INFORMATION and IDEAS in clear structure around central issue
AIM: to teach civil servants how to contract out and use evaluation studies in a decision-making and management of socio-economic programs and policies
Academy of Evaluation: 1 year study program for Polish senior civil servants (6th edition)
Fun approach
Maps of the interventions logic
Maps of research questions
Maps of research design
Allows smooth transition between details and bigger picture
Allows prioritizing, focusing and balancing a coverage of a discussed topic
Allows teacher to see and give feedback on knowledge pattern that emerges in student heads
