UMiss Waymaker Writing Lab Workshop

The following resources were collected as a part of an OER workshop by facilitated by Lumen Learning and The University of Mississippi on August 17, 2017.

This interactive workshop introduces faculty to the Waymaker Writing Lab developed in partnership with University of Mississippi faculty and staff. After a brief overview of the Waymaker personalized learning tools, faculty will go hands-on to set up their course and discuss best practices for implementation. Support resources, including faculty support and first-day-of-class resources will be reviewed, and Lumen facilitators will be available after the session for individualized setup and additional support. 

Workshop participants should bring laptops or have access to a computer with wifi, ideas and best practices, and questions about open educational resources, as there will be plenty of time for questions and conversation.
