Poma have worked in the Educational Technology field for over 20 years. He have earned an AA and a BS in Computer Science. He had also developed workshop curriculum and taught hybrid and fully Online Workshops for Students; and have participated in the creation of guidelines for Hybrid and Fully Online at Hostos for faculty. The “Are you Ready” tool in Blackboard for online students was created seeking to understand exactly what hybrid or online learning means at Hostos. Through his involvement in Educational Technology, he had seen first-hand that EdTech has the potential to become a catalyst of change for faculty–streamlining time-consuming processes (like lesson planning, reporting, and attendance) and simplifying communication through Blackboard. Poma feels that the engagement between faculty and students are one of the key ingredients to really embrace online teaching by using technology tools to accomplish this modality of learning.
