Harriet Hand


PhD Researcher in Education (ESRC 1+3)
Graduate School of Education, University of Bristol

Research topic: Legible Thinking: Maps as Visual Frameworks for Nurturing Creative Thinking

My research will investigate the use of mapping for nurturing creative thinking skills among students age 15–18. Working collaboratively with both teachers, students as well as industry specialists, a form of mapping based on spatial notations –and inspired by Kevin Lynch’s legibility work– will be developed and tested through workshop sessions and in the classroom context.
