Gramling, who has worked in similar programs at Florida State University and at South College in Knoxville, began her new job earlier this month. She will assist faculty and staff in developing and supporting online programs and courses at UT. She will facilitate communication between students seeking online instruction and programs, and will help develop and maintain a website to assist all involved. She reports to the vice provost for academic affairs.
Gramling has bachelor’s degrees in literature and history from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. She has a doctorate in education and a master’s degree in secondary education, both from UT. During her studies at UT, she worked as a graduate assistant in the Office of Research and Information Technology’s Innovative Technology Center and as a graduate assistant in the College of Education, Health, and Human Science’s Department of Instructional Technology, Curriculum, and Evaluation.
Upon graduating from UT in 2003, she began working as a project manager in the Office of Distributed and Distance Learning at Florida State University, where she helped develop and manage online and hybrid courses. Most recently she worked as the associate director of instructional technology and distance learning at South College in Knoxville.
“I am honored to be back at UT and to serve an institution that has meant so much to me,” Gramling said. “I look forward to working with the faculty, staff, students, and administrators that make UT such a great place and to increasing the quality educational opportunities available to students through the development of innovative teaching and learning environments.”
