About this book

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.

Reviews

“Purveyors of how-to guides love generic rules. But there’s only one rule: leverage your distinctiveness. When it comes to implementing educational technology, I’ve never seen it done better than in this book, where carefully thinking through context and constituency shows how best to meet academic goals with technological means–means we must all become adept at using.” (George Otte, University Director of Academic Technology and Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in the School of Professional Studies, City University of New York, USA)

“This book persuasively makes the case for innovative and responsive organizational approaches, support at all levels of the institution, and collaborative leadership to effectively manage the changes required for the wider diffusion and successful implementation of educational technology.” (Susan Ko, Clinical Professor, Lehman College, USA)
