Mind mapping

Mind maps provide an effective tool for organising and making connections between your ideas. They provide a visual representation of your thoughts where key concepts or ideas are mapped around a central concept. A well connected and unified plan will let you see the gaps in your argument and evidence BEFORE you start to write your assignments. Mind maps can also help you to determine your information need and guide your search strategy and reading.

Use a 'mind mapping' technique to start organising ideas from your brainstorming session under the headings provided by your thesis statement.
