We are very excited to share that the book co-authored by our Director, Carlos Guevara, Prof. Kate Wolfe and Prof. Kate Lyons, and with contributions from Prof. Jacqueline DiSanto and several esteemed faculty and members of the EdTech team was published on August 16, 2019. “The Development of Educational Technology at an Urban Community College” is the result of ten years of work with the objective of innovating and achieving a change in the organizational culture to adopt educational technology at Hostos Community College. It is available on Amazon.com, Palgrave McMillan and other important online outlets.
“This book uses a mix of personal narratives, anecdotal evidence, and research-based findings to tell the story of a small, urban community college’s efforts to develop and nurture a Community of Practice (CoP) that would galvanize the campus’ adoption of Educational Technology. Located in one of the poorest congressional district in the United States, Hostos Community College, a Hispanic-serving institution and part of the City University of New York (CUNY), has a unique history rooted in activism, advocacy, and community outreach, and has built a reputation for technology innovation. This book is a collection of writing from faculty and staff members whose decades of experience integrating technology into the classroom pre-dates many of the official initiatives now in place at CUNY.”
