Special Interest Forums

What is a special interest forum?

Special interest forums (SIFs) are an informal option for members to connect and share ideas. SIF members explore a specific topic of education in greater depth. To form a new SIF, two designated team leaders and four other individuals are required.

Here are sample special interest forums:

Children With Special Needs
This forum focuses on generating increased awareness and understanding, both in the USA and globally, of how to innovate and deliver optimal services to children with disabilities and respond effectively to the challenges of the field.

Early Childhood Education in Korea
This forum encourages networking and collaboration among members interested in the trends, issues and research of South Korea's early childhood education programs.

Family Literacy
This forum strives to strengthen awareness on the issue of family literacy, to share ideas to collaborate on best practices, and to develop greater community involvement.

Global Training and Technical Assistance
This forum strives to contribute to the development of resources for global training and technical assistance that address program quality in many childhood education settings.

ACEI History and Heritage
This forum strives to preserve the knowledge of ACEI's significant history and heritage for all present and coming new generations by sharing information.

Peace Education
