68 views

Published on

Lumen’s Faculty Roundtable sessions allow us to bring faculty together who have already adopted Lumen-supported OER courses with those who are still exploring this path. In a Roundtable on October 19th, 2017, we invited long-time Lumen collaborator, OER champion, and business instructor Linda Williams of Tidewater Community College to share her thoughts and experiences using Lumen’s Waymaker platform for business courses.
