Juan Felipe Garcia-Peña has always been fascinated by learning technologies even as a child growing up in Colombia and attending college in Costa Rica. Through his experiences in university-level teaching, government contracting, and private institutions, he has come to understand the importance of evidence-based, collaborative research in solving problems and reaching goals. He has worked to develop medical software and learning systems, integrating philosophy, language, media tools, engineering, and biopedagogy. He brings to his work with SINI a recognition of education as a vibrant, creative, self-sustaining process, where new ideas for making online learning more effective can be tested and improved. He is excited to be working on Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche’s projects through SINI, where higher education is a never-ending journey.
