Peter Symonds College

The conference was organised by Mary Dunn (Education Officer, post-16 Hampshire Children’s services):

“I’d like to organise a mind mapping session in the context of A level Environmental Studies for a group of teachers from Sixth Form colleges in Hampshire. I would guess that the maximum number would be 10 and probably fewer. I could arrange the session in one of the colleges, now I know you can manage the date. We would hope to have a morning session – say, 10 – 1.00.”

The morning conference was to show how to use Mind Maps to teach Environmental Studies. To illustrate the use of Mind Maps we were able to take along extracts from the AS/A2 Mind Map books produced by Oxford School of Learning for Environmental Studies. As a new topic we also summarised recent guidelines on extended coursework.

As a follow-up the two volumes of AS/A2 mind maps were also sent (free). These currently retail to schools for £50+.

Feedback from Mary Dunn:

“Thanks for sending these attachments which I have just forwarded to delegates. Also thanks for the whole session, which was interesting and thought provoking. It was nice to meet you -and thanks for all the info about websites which is always appreciated.”

Thank you so much for everything. Your in-put into Tom’s economics has made a massive difference to him. He has also enjoyed you teaching him, which is more than half of the battle I guess. Thanks also for your understanding with Tom’s stress levels! Hopefully now exams are over (or tomorrow, should I say), things will only improve now! Can’t thank you enough. Your reputation was excellent when we first heard of you, but having experienced the effect your teaching has, you deserve even better! Obviously Tom will be emailing you tomorrow to let you know how he got on and meantime, enough of my compliments! With best wishes. - Sue, Parent
