Title: Waymaker and the Continuous Improvement of Content: Affordable Courseware for Social Sciences

Description: Open educational resources (OER) grant us the permission to continuously improve our instructional materials, but to effectively do so we need more than permission. In this workshop, you will see how Waymaker courseware makes it possible to use learning data to identify where content improvements are needed. You will then learn how Lumen works collaboratively with SUNY faculty to develop and test improvements aimed at strengthening learning, all while reducing costs to students.
