I joined the School of Education in September 2014. Previously, I was a lecturer in E-Learning at the Institute of Learning Innovation (ILI) at Leicester. Prior to joining the University of Leicester I have worked as a Senior Research Fellow at Kingston University, as a Research Fellow at The University of Surrey and as a Post Doctoral Research Fellow at the International Research Foundation for Open Learning in Cambridge. I have a long-standing teaching and research interests on learning technologies and distance education from developed and developing country perspectives, and on international higher education. I am an editorial board member of the Journal Interactive Learning Environments.

Research

Evaluating international distance learner experience (2018 - ). Using Moore’s (1993; 2013) ‘transactional distance theory’, this research explores students’ learning and study experience in an international distance learning context. Preliminary work has been presented at the 10th EDEN Research Workshop in Oct 2018 (Edirisingha and Jiang, 2018).

International students’ transitional issues and their development of digital literacy skills. (2012 – ). This project explores issues surrounding international students’ digital practices during their transitional stages from overseas to UK academic context. Emerging findings from the research has been presented at a number of national and international conferences (eg., Simmons, Edirisingha, and Jiang, 2017; Edirisingha and Simmons, 2015).

Lesson study approach to distance learning curriculum development. (2015 - ).  This research explores the use of Lesson Study approach to improving the design, delivery and learner experience in M level distance learning. The work on this research resulted in 2 journal papers (Edirisingha and Wood, 2018; Edirisingha and Wood, 2017) and a paper at the EDEN 2016 Research Workshop) which was shortlisted for best-paper award.

Culturally-relevant approaches to the use of digital technologies to support teaching and learning. (2018 - ). This participatory action research project is aimed at designing technology-enhanced learning approaches that takes into account the social and cultural values of target audiences. The basis for this work was the Kazakhstan University and school  teachers’ internship programme (Sept 2014 - ) and the Open University of China visiting scholar programme (2012 - ).

Project-Based Learning (PBL) (2012 – 2014). This was an EU-funded research project called SCENE (http://www.sceneproject.eu/) on the use of ICT to develop and evaluate PBL in secondary schools and vocational education and training institutes in a selected five European countries

Further Research

From Feb 2006 – Sept 2014 at the Institute of Learning Innovation (ILI) and Beyond Distance Research Alliance (BDRA). I have researched the pedagogical use of a range of emerging digital technologies (podcasting, mobile learning and 3-D Multi-User Virtual Environment (3D MUVE). I have been playing a key role in developing research proposals that were funded by the JISC and the HEA. These include 3 Podcasting projects (IMPALA) and a mobile learning (WoLF) project and a Second Life project (MOOSE). Publications from these projects include Edirisingha et al (2018), Nie, Bird and Edirisingha (2013), Edirisingha, Hawkridge and Fothergill, 2010), Salmon, Nie and Edirisingha (2010) and Salmon and Edirisingha (2008).
