- The Concept Map must visuallyâ€¯connect all of the specified objectivesâ€¯(Program Outcomes, MSN Essentials, and NONPF Competencies)â€¯to course workâ€¯(such as specific discussion board topics, written assignments, exams, lessons, and reading content).
- All items should be labeled, for instance, label the objectives and label the course work you select with name of the assignment/reading/discussion board topic and which week it was introduced.
- Use Microsoft Word or a PowerPoint to create a Concept Map. You can use the features found on the â€œInsertâ€ tab of a Word doc (in the horizontal ribbon on the top of a Word doc page). For instance, if you click on “insert” you will see shapes and SmartArt. You can use a PowerPoint slide with shapes and lines to create a concept/mind map. This is not a PowerPoint presentation , but a PowerPoint slide can be used to â€œdrawâ€ the Map.
