Join the ACRL Instruction section for its virtual annual program to discuss four stages of curriculum mapping.  Curriculum mapping is a systematic approach to reviewing curriculum and identifying of areas in which information literacy instruction would have a high impact.  Library instructors across the country are examining impact, developing outreach strategies, and communicating with both internal and external stakeholders.  Learn how strategic use of curriculum mapping can help you advance both your teaching and instruction program.
