Faculty Roundtable Sessions allow us to bring together faculty who are already using Lumen-supported OER courses with those who are exploring this rewarding path. On Monday, October 17th, 2017, we had the opportunity to speak with Matthew and Libby Watts of Tidewater Community College, both Professors of Math and champions of the OER movement for Math courses.
