By Carlos Guevara, Director of EdTech

This past summer has been remarkably busy but extremely productive for our Director, Carlos Guevara, who has been promoting and highlighting the innovative work of the EdTech team nationally and internationally for all these years.

Collaborating with Prof. Jacqueline DiSanto, ETLC Co-Chair and Chair of the Education Department received a grant from the Robin Hood Foundation to redesign the Introduction to Instructional Technology course – EDU 226, and integrate national standards to promote computational thinking, digital citizenship, and universal design for learning (UDL). The course was presented and approved by the College Senate and was successfully offered for the first time in the Summer by Carlos Guevara. Carlos is currently teaching the class in the Fall semester and is also exploring the HyFlex learning modality.
