California Education Learning Lab

In 2018, Assembly Bill 1809 established the California Educational Learning Lab (“Learning Lab”): a competitive grantmaking program for intersegmental faculty teams to incorporate learning science and adaptive learning technology into their curriculum and pedagogy, with the express purpose of increasing learning outcomes and closing equity and achievement gaps in STEM and other disciplines.

The Governor’s Office of Planning and Research has an annual budget of $10 million for this program. The initial grants will focus on lower-division online and hybrid courses in STEM. In later years, other disciplines may compete for funds, and funds may be used to support professional development and a curated library of course materials that have successfully reduced achievement gaps and improved learning outcomes. The Governor’s Office of Planning and Research will provide regular updates on this page as the program progresses.
