We are thrilled to start the first edition of the HETS Learning Technologies Leadership Academy (H-LTLA)!

The HETS Learning Technologies Leadership Academy (H-LTLA) is a professional development program focused on developing the next generation of leaders to serve at Hispanic Serving Institutions. Starting from August 3 to 6, this first edition will be in English through online synchronous conferences with expert resources. In this first edition of the HETS Academy, 13 candidates were selected from institutions like EDP University, Universidad Interamericana de Puerto Rico, California State University San Bernardino, Bronx Community College, Louisiana Community, and Technical College System, Broward International University, and Universidad Iberoamericana (UNINI).

The acceptance to the H-LTLA was a competitive application process. The Evaluation Committee members, composed of senior staff at HETS Member Institutions selected by the HETS Board of Directors, based on their expertise, validated their peers’ applications for the H-LTLA. Through this process, the evaluation committee chose the most competitive applications with compelling evidence that the candidates meet all the requirements to take full advantage of the Academy. Also, they created a participants group with diverse experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives.

Finally, the HETS Academy Faculty is delighted and ready to help fill the gaps in the participant’s expertise and experience through synchronous presentations of eight different topics. Also, would like to announce that thanks to the great support and interest received for the HETS Academy, a Spanish Track is on the agenda for the 2022 Spring semester.
