Stephanie Blackmon is an associate professor in the William & Mary School of Education. She teaches qualitative research courses and courses related to college and university teaching and learning, with a particular emphasis on areas such as technology integration and experiential learning.

Blackmon’s research explores the qualitative experiences people have with the following: technology integration in higher education and professional development settings; trust and privacy in learning and data analytics use; and trust and privacy with the use of internet-connected devices such as wearable technology, mobile technology, and in-home technology. Blackmon is currently the lead PI on an interdisciplinary CCI grant that includes colleagues from Old Dominion University’s Department of Philosophy & Religious Studies and the Virginia Modeling, Analysis & Simulation Center (VMASC). The research project is rooted in universal design (UD) and universal design learning (UDL), equity, and justice, as the team studies the experiences people with disabilities have with trust and internet-connected devices.
