What I like

  • Great subject = basics are important
  • Laminated examples
  • Lots of physical examples
  • Drawing on whiteboard
  • Many examples
  • The exercise
  • The topic
  • Can be used for anything
  • Combination of creativity and thinking
  • Topic, format, interaction between presenters
  • The subject
  • Exercises
  • Practical - liked the individual exercise to make learning stick. Was fun!
  • Beautiful mindmaps
  • Good information
  • Never considerd this technique. A real eye-opener
  • Nice examples
  • Interesting concept. I recently used a mindmap. This stimulated me to use more (and teach my children about it)
  • New concept, unknown to me
  • Combining the two parts of your brain
  • Some nice examples
  • Hands-on exercise
  • Clear why it helps remembering -> left/right side of the brain. Good explanation
  • Practice
  • Examples on the walls
  • Idea behind concept mapping
  • Brain ??? to remember and recall
  • Great technique, I'll certainly try to use it
  • It's a useful technique and it was explained well
  • The hands-on exercise
  • Made a good point
  • Challenging & interesting exercise inspired me to try more
  • Enthusiasm from the presenters
  • Combination of theory and applying it

To improve

  • Know the English words in the explanations
  • Don't have questions and the feedback form at the same time. It's messy and participants don't listen to the questions
  • More time would be useful
  • Fewer examples
  • Explain more "how"
  • Provide slides in English too
  • May have been nice to walk through one (mindmap?) to show how a map could be reused from a personal to knowledge transfer point of view
  • More interactive
  • Larger screen
  • More exploratory experience
  • Fewer mindmap examples
  • More practice
  • Let Olivier do some talking too
  • Make slides in Engish?
  • Fewer examples, maybe more practice/tips
  • Got loads of exampls, but still don't get it
  • Fewer examples, more guidelines
  • Less talk and showing mindmaps - more practice
  • Compare and contrast other mapping techniques
  • Try to give more time to practice it. Some of the examples given could have been left out
  • I would make the explanation shorter and the people work in groups on their own map & then discuss the results
  • I felt the presenter was suggesting tghat mind maps could replace books & letters. I think it was explained later on that mind mapping helps retain long pieces of text and makes it stick on your head, but feel this could have been explained earlier on
