Idea

A morphism of spans from a span A <-f- S -g-> B to a span A <-h- T -k-> B consists of a map w : S → T equipped with two homotopies witnessing that the diagram

             S
           / | \
        f /  |  \ h
         V   |   V
        A    |w   B
         ∧   |   ∧
        h \  |  / k
           \ V /
             T

commutes.
