Step 2 - Concept mapping of core terms

Step 3 - Reporting

  • Please write, as a group, a 250 words reflection on your concept mapping process

The process itself was constructed in two phases: the first was when each of us read and structured his\her own map, with the second step of knowing how to connect those four maps together and modifying them, based on what did each of us understand from the others as well. As a group composed of people coming from very different backgrounds, we were very focused on the societal perspective of landscape, as well as its collective interpretation. Through group meetings, the main defined theme of the map was also assigned; due to the variety of the readings, it was not easy to reach a mid-point, yet through language differences, it was finally achieved. It was important for us to create a common ground defining what landscape is and represents. Some of our readings focused on the instruments to represent it; others in its role to contain and empower a continuos social construct. Still, the readings mainly reflected about the collective character of the landscape phenomenon; the creation of a continuously changing collective memory. This collective memory is sustainable in the extent it represents and forges a common interest among the users, a common responsibility shared to preserve and maintain the sense of place and a common happiness of users to enjoy and use the place. Another exciting point was to see some of the readings being understood differently, depending on the culture and the background of studies, as some of us had the same readings but mixed with other ones. This has given us a deeper understanding to some of the readings, as well as allowing the group to hear about more readings in a shorter time period
