    Abstract

    This paper aims at improving serialist students| learning effect by concept mapping. It discusses concept mapping as a learning strategy and its effects in either an accommodatory or a compensatory strategy of the student|s style. In order to exam the effects, an Autonomous Learning Concept Mapping (ALCM) course containing Globalistic Concept Mapping (GCM) and Specialistic Concept Mapping (SCM), is designed and implemented in the study. The learning effect of ALCM on serialists is evaluated by exam and questionnaire. The paper concludes that serialists improve their learning achievements when they use CM accommodatory strategy properly. Concept mapping improves serialists| learning effects when it is used in a special approach.
