for improving teaching and learning with OER in community colleges  
Achieving the Dream is the leading college network championing evidence-based institutional improvement to help community colleges improve outcomes for low-income students and students of color who dream of achieving their goals for academic success and economic opportunity. Building on the success of the OER Degree Initiative, this group aims to create a suite of evidence-based supports to help colleges and their faculty design and teach highly effective open courses. The group will study the course design process and impacts of these courses on student learning, especially for students who have traditionally been left behind in higher education.
