Abstract
Among the techniques used for processes of teaching innovation, system thinking plays an important role when working mainly with mind maps, and is focused on highlighting the essence of the knowledge, allowing its visual representation. In this paper, a method for using these mind maps for organizing a particular subject is explained. This organization is completed with the definition of duration, precedence relationships and resources for each of these activities, as well as with their corresponding monitoring. Mind maps are generated by means of the mind manager package, whilst Ms-project is used for establishing tasks relationships, durations, resources and monitoring. Hence, a procedure and the necessary set of applications for self-organizing and self-managing (timed) scheduled teaching can be offered for planning educational activities. Subsequently, it is assumed that the adaptation to the EHEA (European Higher Education Area) is becoming a great challenge for the University Community, especially for its teaching and research staff, which is involved actively in the teaching-learning process. It is also inducing a paradigm change for lecturers and students.
