For this activity, we will be mind-mapping the concept of Governance using the MindMeister app I've added to our MS Teams class meeting. See MS Teams and eLearn for the direct link to the MindMeister mind map titled, "Governance."
Contributing to the mindmap tech-wise (as opposed to through verbal discussion or posts added to the chat in MS Teams) is entirely optional. Furthermore, students are strongly encouraged to use aliases when working in the MindMeister mindmap tool.
This mindmap will be the same worked on in both sections and will be built over several class meetings.
Going through this process is also meant to teach students how to build mental models for themselves when learning new concepts.
This is the same process that instructors went through to learn
these concepts, which is why learning from lectures are so ineffective;
All the active learning is done by the person who build the mental
models (mind maps) to prepare the lecture, not the listeners.

Reflection Points = "It is easy to get defensive when things around us have to change, and we always have a choice to either reject it or embrace it. When the genius in the story rejected his fate, life seemed grim. When he embraced the change, his energy revived, and he expanded his horizons beyond what he considered possible."

You need to be present to participate. Each attending student submits a copy of their group's report and will get another group's report to give feedback on. This means that you need to have at least one member of your group present to get feedback on your report. More group members present, more responses from other classmates on your report, which should help improve your final mark on the assessment.
