Are you interested in bringing real-world international perspectives and experiences to your classroom?
SUNY Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) is an innovative teaching method, linking faculty and students from different countries in a virtual international educational experience.
In COIL courses, teachers from two countries, and often from different disciplines, co-teach and work together in a virtual environment from their respective campuses. Members of COIL develop shared lessons or courses, emphasizing experiential and collaborative student learning. Collaborations can range from 4 to 12 weeks and provide students new venues to develop cross-cultural awareness. Classes may be fully online or, more often, offered in blended formats with traditional face-to-face sessions taking place at both schools, virtual exchange sessions between campuses, and online collaborative student work.
The College at Brockport’s Center for Global Education and Engagement (CGEE) is committed to the growth and development of COIL and COIL-to-Study Abroad and Exchange opportunities. A COIL course can increase students’ interest and participation in a study abroad program.
The campus has secured a relationship with SUNY COIL that will provide instruction in virtual international education for six faculty members during the upcoming academic year. The CGEE's COIL Coordinator/Instructional Designer will be available to assist with course development and implementation.
For more information, please contact Ann Giralico Pearlman, at your convenience. The first COIL Course Orientation (CCO) is set for August 27. See the link below.
