Presenters will share how course mapping is being used with faculty as a key strategy in the planning phase of course development. Positive feedback by faculty about course mapping suggests NMSU is on the right track by requiring them to create a map. The presenters will clarify what course mapping is, explain how it is being used, share examples and a QM-aligned course mapping template, and address the benefits and challenges of course mapping. Bring your digital devices to interact with fellow attendees and the presenters via Today's Meet.
