UMiss Waymaker Writing Lab Workshop
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.
