Dr. Swapna Kumar

I am a Clinical 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, namely quality in online education, online doctoral education and online supervision, and blended learning. 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. I enjoy learning from my graduate students and their research experiences.
