Workshop: 'Concept Mapping for Big Ideas'

Friday, 25 January, 2019

The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) will hold a concept mapping event centered on a Big Ideas competition from 8 a.m. to noon on Friday, Jan. 25, in Room 450, DuBourg Hall.

A concept map is a way to visually represent relationships among ideas. In a concept map, each word or phrase connects to another, expressing logical thinking and demonstrating how individual ideas form a larger whole. The process aids in refining research ideas.

During this session, participants will begin to develop a concept map for their big idea. The session will be led by Saran Twombly, Ph.D., former National Science Foundation (NSF) program director and consultant for SLU’s grantsmanship workshops.
