Dr. Swapna Kumar

I am a Clinical Associate Professor at the College of Education, University of Florida. I teach in the Educational Technology Program and coordinate the online Doctor of Education in Curriculum and Instruction (Specialization in Educational Technology) offered at the School of Teaching and Learning. I am lucky to be part of a team of enthusiastic, creative, and positive professionals.

My research interests include online education, blended learning, and the integration of emerging technologies in post-secondary environments. I enjoy exploring the usefulness of new online technologies to supplement teaching and learning in all environments. My own teaching and collaboration with educators across the world has taught me that technology, if used thoughtfully, can greatly enhance the learning experience and motivate learners. My current research focuses on mentoring in online environments, quality in online education, and the ways in which networked environments can globalize teacher education.
