COIL Institute This Summer

This summer the Office of Internationalization and the Office of Teaching and Learning will hold an institute on August 8th and 9th designed to support faculty in understanding and applying the principles of Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL). 

COIL is a type of virtual mobility, where students from DU and a partner institution engage in purposeful interaction for intercultural and global learning in a joint course. COIL can work with a course that faculty currently teach at DU, or a completely new course can be developed. Students from both classes may interact synchronously or asynchronously for a few weeks or an entire term through whichever technologies are most relevant and useful. Often culturally diverse students work together on a project, class discussions, or similar group work with discipline-based and intercultural learning outcomes. COIL is ultimately about building connections and new relationships with people, knowledge systems, and perspectives across numerous types of borders. It a powerful opportunity to help students engage in cross-cultural and global learning.

COIL Institute

Monday, August 8 and Tuesday, August 9

9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

On-campus - location to be determined

Participating faculty will be given a stipend from the Office of Internationalization. Contact Casey Dinger, Executive and Academic Director for Internationalization, at [email protected] for more information.
