Eileen Kennedy is a Senior Research Associate with CGHE based at UCL Knowledge Lab, where she is exploring the transformative potential of digital technologies in higher education. Her research focuses on developing learning design tools, scaling up online collaborative learning (e.g. through MOOCs) and researching the experience of learning online.

Eileen’s research centres on scaling up practice in online and blended learning, which involves developing learning design tools (with Diana Laurillard), creating teacher communities online (e.g. through MOOCs) and researching the experience of learning and teaching online.

She conducts Design Based Research to create and evaluate digital solutions to teaching problems, using a variety of mostly (but not exclusively) qualitative research methods.

In addition to her research for CGHE, Eileen is also a Senior Research Associate with the RELIEF centre where she is investigating the potential of scaling up online learning to create inclusive prosperity in the context of mass displacement.
