Life Mapping

Welcome to the life mapping section!

The purpose of the life-mapping activity is to learn about the reasoning and thought processes underpinning the decisions that have impacted working students in order to better understand the social, organizational and institutional policies and practices that have a bearing on students’ current work and study experiences.

In pairs, you will be asked to draw a map of the events and circumstances that have led you to your current situation. The map will begin during your last year of high school until the present. During the course of the study, participants will update your life-maps to track your ongoing work-study decisions and the reasoning behind them.

This activity may be useful for your cv and/or e-portfolio.
