Editorial: Novakian concept mapping in university and professional education

Ian M. Kinchin


Novakian concept mapping has the potential to make a major impact in the development of higher education as universities strive to support students’ generation of powerful knowledge. This can be achieved by increasing the accessibility of multiple perspectives on knowledge that reveal and exploit the epistemic chaos that lies beneath a veneer of curriculum coherence. This veneer has only served to restrict the impact of university teaching so that institutions have typically acted as centres of non-learning. Papers in this special issue will support the development of the application of concept mapping into an era of knowledge transformation, where concept maps can help to challenge redundant non-learning discourses.
