My name is Kathryn Kennedy, and I am the Director of Research for the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL). In this position, I am responsible for providing multiple venues for disseminating research, establishing an annual research agenda, and conducting, coordinating, and disseminating research studies to help inform the field of K-12 blended and online learning. My practical experiences include pre-service and in- service teacher, technology specialist, and school librarian professional development for technology integration and instructional design in traditional, blended, and online learning environments. My research interests deal directly with my practical experience and concentrate mostly on education professionals and their preparation for next generation learning models, including but not limited to online and blended learning environments. I hold a Ph.D. from the University of Florida (2010) in curriculum and instruction, with a concentration in educational technology, a master’s from the Florida State University (2005) in library and information science, specializing in young adult literature, and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Florida (2000) in English, with an emphasis in children’s and adolescent literature.
