Kevin Hulen has been involved in the design and development of online content for more than 20 years. He came to UNF in 2012 from the University of Florida (UF) where he earned graduate degrees in Biology and Education and worked with several science departments to implement educational technolgy. Kevin currently focuses on the implementation of institutional-initiatives related to impact of online learning, including student satisfaction, faculty satisfaction, student success factors, and other analytics related to online course quality and review. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with family, surfing, and travelling.
2008. Prudential Davis Productivity Award
