Concept maps are used as tools to create meaningful relationships between concepts in order to make a visual
map that can be read as a narrative. Concept mapping is used in the analysis stage of the problem solving
process and works as an evaluation tool to externalize concepts and visualize information.
This collection of concept maps emphasizes various topics relating to my graduate research.
Concept Mapping proves to be a "Design Thinking" method which works for me when I seek to gain
a greater understanding of a topic, need to generate content, and/or gather research.
