Embedded Instruction for Early Learning – International is a collection of collaborations with colleagues abroad to support the implementation of embedded instruction practices. When working with colleagues in local settings we aim to maintain the fidelity of embedded instruction practices while also supporting culturally and contextually appropriate ways of implementing the practice.
To date we have engaged in projects in New Zealand, Turkey, Portugal, and Australia.
In New Zealand, EI team members are currently collaborating with colleagues at the Massey University to explore intentional teaching practices in early childhood settings in New Zealand and support the implementation of embedded instruction practices.
