Abstract

An evaluation of application of the conceptual mapping technique (Inglis, 2003) to the team-based design of fourteen courses in an Engineering undergraduate program is described. The evaluation employed a method of scoring each conceptual map against criteria tied to the objectives of the design process. The evaluation method was found to be capable of revealing differences in application of the conceptual mapping technique. The evaluation indicated that the course teams concerned appeared to have focused closely on the adequacy of intended learning outcomes but less closely on matching the student assessment adequately with the intended learning outcomes. The evaluation also indicated that to obtain the full benefit of use of the technique, more training of instructional design staff was required than had been provided.
