Study skills: Mind mapping

Venue: Online

Book your place

Mind mapping is a ‘thinking tool that reflects externally what goes on inside your head’ (Tony Buzan) that can be used in all areas of your personal, professional and academic life. This session will consider what mind mapping is and the importance of mind mapping for studying.

The other focus of this session will be on how to mind map and using your mind mapping skills to brainstorm a topic, organise an essay and to take notes from the reading or in lectures. This workshop can also work in conjunction with the Notemaking workshop.

This online workshop will take place on a Blackboard Collaborate link within the Birkbeck Study Skills Moodle Module. If you have booked, you will be emailed another link as a reminder to your registered email address (so please remember to check your junk mail.)
