The Early Literacy Initiative consists of a small group of individuals brought together by a shared passion and commitment to early language and literacy. This team represents tremendous diversity in experiences, backgrounds and ages. We have amongst us, people with experience working with children and adults for periods ranging from decades in experience to a few years. We have seasoned academics, established practitioners, and also a set of young, eager-to-learn post-graduates and research students. The ages of the team members ranges from 23 to 83 years! We all believe that ELI will give us a chance to learn from each other – and from all of you! We hope that we are successful in making this space useful for our mutual learning. You can learn more about ELI team members, advisory committee, and academic collaborators.
