The OUSL, with the support from Commonwealth of Learning (COL),has initiated a research project on the implementation of the Commonwealth Digital Education Leadership Training in Action (C-DELTA) Programme in the teaching-learning process in Sri Lankan schools and on the evaluation of its impact. The key aim of this project is to develop capacity among school teachers and promote the adoption of digital education environments in schools.

This programme was inaugurated by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, OUSL, Prof. K. B Gunaherath, on 20th July, 2018, at OUSL, and a capacity-building workshop was held from 20th to 22nd July 2018 for a group of 41 teachers from 39 schools representing the nine Provinces of Sri Lanka.It is envisaged that the participants of this research project will develop their competencies in adopting and promoting C-DELTA in their schools by improving their digital education leadership skills, thus becoming effective professionals who can cater to the digital education environments in their institutions.

This research project is presently implemented at the Faculty of Education, OUSL, by a five-member team, under the leadership of Prof. Shironica P. Karunanayaka, Dean, Faculty of Education, OUSL.
