Getting Started with Curriculum Mapping: Panel Discussion (Part 1)

April 14, 2022

Learn from a panel of education leaders on how they made curriculum mapping work for them. Learn the challenges they’ve experienced, how they addressed them and moved forward with solutions that worked. Heidi Hayes Jacobs and Marie Alcock, two curriculum experts, moderate the discussion.

These two sessions will walk you through getting staff motivated and involved in curriculum mapping, determining goals for curriculum mapping initiatives, determining what a quality curriculum map looks like, and helpful PD practices and grouping staff (PLCs) to prepare and engage faculty.
