This study investigated teaching mechanics with mind mapping instructional strategy in Tertiary Institutions in Ekiti State. A research survey design was used for this study. Four research questions were raised for the study. Simple random sampling techniques was used to select forty (40) students from Physics Department in College of Education, Ikere Ekiti which made up the total sample size for the study. Simple mean and standard deviation was used to analyze data collected for the study. The findings of the study concluded that mind mapping is not widely used in physical therapist education but that faculty are interested in learning more about the tenets associated with Mind Mapping instructional strategy. It was also revealed that the use of mind mapping instructional strategy has a positive effect on learners’ participation in physics lectures. On the gender related issue, there was no significant difference in the mean scores of male and female students taught using mid mapping instructional strategy. Based on the findings, it was recommended that THE use of mind mapping instructional strategy should be adopted by teachers in order to promote meaningful learning of difficult concepts in Physics and that training and re-training programmes should incorporate the teaching of pre-service teachers in the use of mind mapping in teaching and learning process.
