Advancing Effective Interactions & Instruction in Birth-to-Five Classrooms
What We Do
The Advancing Effective Interactions and Instruction (AEII) initiative supports teachers in birth-to-five classrooms to provide children with high-quality preschool experiences through individualized coaching and professional development (PD).
Project Status: Active
Funding Source: Virginia Department of Education
Coaching and PD support are provided to select classrooms based on identified needs in school-based preschool and publicly-funded early childhood programs.
The initiative is implemented by the University of Virginia's Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning, in partnership with the Virginia Department of Education.
