Concept map assignments help students graphically represent and organize complex ideas and processes—and also help instructors to assess higher-order student learning. This workshop will guide faculty in the creation of a concept mapping assignment. Participants will be introduced to the ways in which concept mapping assignments facilitate student learning, to the benefits and drawbacks of concept mapping assignments, and to the ways in which one might use effectively and efficiently employ concept maps in face-to-face and online courses. Before coming to the session, participants should select and think about a topic their students may organize through a concept map.
