In 2018, Assembly Bill 1809 established the California Education Learning Lab (Learning Lab) in order to improve learning outcomes and close equity gaps across California’s public higher education segments, particularly in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) disciplines.
Housed in the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) and administered in partnership with the Foundation for California Community Colleges (Foundation), Learning Lab funds innovative, intersegmental, faculty-led projects that leverage technology tools and the science of human learning to foster student success in online and hybrid learning environments.
Learning Lab’s team operates in consultation with an advisory board, OPR Leadership, and is supported by the Foundation’s administrative structure.
