For A Research-practice Partnership To Test Theories Of Diffusion And Scaled Impact
Type of SupportGeneral Support/Program
The Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley is home to a diverse group of students and faculty with a common interest in improving education. The grantee will work with the Hayward Unified School District and the Reach Institute for School Leadership to help educators adopt teaching practices designed to deepen the rigor of instruction across a school district. By documenting the process, this work will both benefit similar school districts that lack the attributes of effective teaching and inform the spread of innovative practices.

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.
