Event: Concept Maps for Collaborating, Designing, and Teaching

Concept maps are graphical representations of concepts and their relationships to each other. Mapping is an effective way for librarians to design and communicate information skills sessions, plan team projects, or to help library users articulate their information needs. While learning about concept mapping theory and applications to  library settings, participants will design their own concept map relevant to their work.
