You can network with people from around the world through ACSI's online community group, Community, where all ACSI members can connect in "communities of practice" based on teaching assignment, academic discipline, or area of interest or expertise.  The Early Education community group is where educators network and collaborate to share ideas related to serving, supporting, and teaching young learners.
