for supporting the Anti-Racism Interactive Science to Expand Success (ARISES) project
The Technology Enhanced Learning in Science group at UC Berkeley is a partnership of classroom teachers, researchers, and technologists who conduct design-based research to develop OER that promotes integrated and coherent understanding. With the Anti-Racism Interactive Science to expand Success (ARISES) project, the group will explore how OER, combined with research-tested pedagogical patterns, can be used by teachers to customize technology-rich interactive science units to strengthen students’ science understanding, build student agency, and promote racial equity.

for planning for the development of a political economy center
This is a planning grant to design and launch a new center for the study of political economy at UC Berkeley. Political economy — the analysis of the interplay of markets and government — is a critically important domain of research and theorizing, relevant to addressing a wide range of global challenges. Berkeley has an exceptional faculty working in this field and a strong curricular foundation, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. This initiative seeks to build on and extend these strengths, making Berkeley a leading institution in the development of usable knowledge in this field, enhancing its training of the next generation of scholars, and encouraging engagement with relevant communities beyond the academy.
