Conversation in the Living Room: Integrating Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) into your curriculum

by International Services

Join us to learn more about COIL learning. An aspirational outcome of our participation in the ACE (American Council on Education) Internationalization Laboratory is to engage a process to internationalization the curriculum. The SUNY Center for Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) is one of the leading international organizations focused on the emerging field of Globally Networked Learning (GNL); a teaching and learning methodology, which provides innovative cost-effective internationalization strategies. Such programs foster faculty and student interaction with peers abroad through co-taught multicultural online and blended learning environments emphasizing experiential student collaboration. FGCU joined the COIL initiative in 2019. In this “Conversation in the Living Room”, we will discuss the methodologies as well as hear from faculty that are currently implementing the initiative in their classrooms.
