Keywords + Concept Map

Home » Keywords + Concept Map


List down keywords for research topic. Find underlying issues and themes that we can consider for our research. 

Final Outcome

Last year when I was applying to Lasalle, I submitted a research proposal on the development of an e-learning portal to promote active ageing in Singapore. I decided to look further into this topic as I feel that although the government is doing their part to care for this group of mature adults, there are still many things we can look into to improve on current programmes and strategies. 

Some of the main keywords that I identified were: 

  1. Health
  2. Finance
  3. Education
  4. Volunteerism

After identifying some of the keywords, I placed them in a concept map to branch out into more keywords and themes. 

Concept map linking keywords and issues

The final set of keywords in this concept map that stands out most to me were: 

  1. Mental Health
  2. Retirement
  3. Lifelong Learning
  4. Volunteerism

Learning Points

This was our first step towards creating our concept map. A concept map is sort of like a graphic organiser that helps us organise our thoughts and knowledge of our topics. It also helps with the brainstorming process by helping us identify new themes and topics that we can look further into.
