Concept maps are a useful way to represent someone’s knowledge and understanding of a domain in a diagrammatic form.  Properly used they can be a powerful tool in both teaching and in assessing student and cohort learning.  This webinar will introduce concept maps to the audience and how they can be used and assessed.

This webinar is aimed at engineering academic who wish to explore alternative methods for student  assessment.  Participants will learn about concept maps and different ways to assess them, which they can then use in their class rooms, and to assess student and cohort learnings.
