Welcome to the Educational Technology Program at the University of Florida. Faculty and students in the UF Ed Tech program collaborate with colleagues at UF and around the world to facilitate, study and disseminate ways in which learning, design and innovative technologies within physical, virtual and blended learning environments empower educators and learners and impact society. Our international faculty have experience in K-12, post-secondary and corporate environments and take the responsibility of preparing the next generation of educational technologists very seriously.
Our faculty and students conduct research on effective technology integration in various contexts including technology supports for online and multimedia learning, digital game-based learning, technology in medical education, and problem-based learning.
