kaizad-iraniKaizad Irani is the Program Director for Horticulture and Landscape Design at Parkland College in Champaign, Illinois. He recently attended a 2-week workshop in Kansas City called Drawing and Designing with Confidence taught by Mike Lin. Mike asked Kaizad to teach an Idea Mapping segment as a new tool to add to the participants “design toolbox.”

After Kaizad’s 45-minute PowerPoint based presentation, he facilitated a breakout session with about 4 members per team and asked them to create a map of their learning experiences of the 2-week workshop. The resulting maps were great and all the participants had very positive response.
This series will feature about 7 idea maps from that breakout session. Keep in mind that these participants all had some sort of a graphics/design background, so don’t be intimidated!
