Assignment 1: Mind Map of Your Cultural Journey
Create mind map as a visual representation to show your understanding of your personal cultural values, attitudes and beliefs and include a supporting document (up to 1000-1500 words approx.) For example you could talk about your own cultural identity as you see it and how it relates to your professional practice.
Due Date: Monday Week 5
To do this you will have to:
Construct a mind map as a visualisation tool.
You can do this in several ways, including: a powerpoint slide, poster template, hand drawn or created using a particular medium then photographed, or using a specific mind mapping application.
You should identify at least 4 key elements of your personal cultural identity and how these can impact on your professional practices and interactions.
You need to write a reflective piece examining and clarifying personal cultural values that may conflict with and/or impact on professional interactions.
You will need to focus on how each individual cultural identity is derived from family, ethnicity, gender, class and race and how these inform professional values to guide your work practice.
What is a mind map?
A mind map is a diagram used to visually organise information. A mind map is often created around a single concept, drawn as an image in the centre of a blank landscape page, to which associated representations of ideas such as images, words and parts of words are added. Major ideas are connected directly to the central concept, and other ideas branch out from those.
As with other diagramming tools, mind maps can be used to generate, visualise, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid to studying and organising information, solving problems, making decisions, and writing. Mind maps are tools which help you think and learn. (http://www-public.jcu.edu.au/learningskills/resources/lsonline/mindmapping/)
