I am Dr. Kathleen P. King, a professor of higher education at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida, with much experience in classroom teaching, program development, administration, and research. Teaching, learning and innovation are critical foci and passions in my work.

You may also enjoy visiting my Transformation Education LLC site for innovative solutions which I and my colleagues develop and provide through education consulting and services.

My 15+ years experience as a professor of education and director of graduate programs at University of Central Florida, University of South Florida and Fordham University, as well as my 20+ years as an independent consultant provide a rich foundation for my work within higher education and related industries. My work focuses on research and development efforts, which serve professional development needs of adults and learners of all ages across contexts.

In addition to transformative learning, my work has extensively developed in instructional technology, distance learning, equity issues and global perspectives of learning having earned many awards in each of these areas in recent years. I am grateful for the many opportunities I have to work with emerging and experienced scholars to help shape new educational directions.

I look forward to hearing from you about connections with my research and collaborations. I have access to several academic publishing opportunities for new and experienced scholars, which I would be pleased to discuss.

I hope your visit to this site will benefit your personal and professional growth.

Virtually yours,

Dr. Kathleen (“Kathy”) P. King
