Ole Miss Waymaker Workshop
The following resources were collected as a part of an OER workshop by facilitated by Lumen Learning and The University of Mississippi Department of Writing & Rhetoric on August 17, 2017.
This interactive workshop introduces faculty to the Lumen Waymaker supplemental writing tool developed in partnership with University of Mississippi faculty and staff. After a brief overview of Waymaker, faculty will go hands-on to set up their course and discuss best practices. Faculty support resources and PPT slides for the first-day-of-class resources will be reviewed, and Lumen facilitators will be available after the session to provide additional support.
