Regardless of instructional format (e.g. hybrid, on-line, competency based), instructors rely on mapping to introduce and reinforce geospatial concepts. In this interactive short paper session, presenters will share how they use dynamic, web-based maps (e.g. on-line ArcGIS, OpenStreetMap, Google Earth) to teach geographic concepts. Presenters will (1) introduce the range of web-based mapping resources currently available; (2) discuss specific ways that they have incorporated web-based maps into activities; and (3) share materials that can be used to design and develop learning activities, assignments, and labs.
