The Advancing Effective Interactions and Instruction (AEII) initiative is all about supporting teachers to provide young children with high-quality learning experiences through individualized professional development.
Between 2018-2021, AEII served over 2000 classrooms across Virginia. Now, our focus is individualized coaching for birth-to-five teachers.
AEII works with education leaders and teachers to support early childhood classrooms across the Commonwealth.
AEII is a collaborative partnership between researchers, education leaders, teachers, and state legislators.
We support teachers to provide high-quality early learning experiences, giving children a strong start in school
In partnership with the Virginia Department of Education, AEII is implemented by a devoted team at the Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning (CASTL) at the University of Virginia.
