Abstract

This paper will present a model of teaching and learning in Higher Education through the integrated use of Vee Heuristics and Concept Mapping. This research will suggest that when using Concept Maps, Vee Heuristics and an awareness of how students prefer to learn, learners will go through a metacognitive learning process which will eventually lead to meaningful learning. Using the productions of University students, this study traces the effect of a learner 19s mental operations on the learner 19s use of Vee Heuristics and Concept Mapping as the learner embeds and retrieves new and scaffolded knowledge. The data collected reveals the powerful effect which this combination of learning tools yielded on student achievement and transformation.
