This three-day institute at Florida International University’s stunning Miami Beach Urban Studios will bring together teams from US and international higher education institutions to integrate Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) / Virtual Exchange into their curricula and internationalization plans.
Developed over the past fifteen years, COIL, also referred to as Virtual Exchange or Telecollaboration, is a method for connecting teachers and their students with peers in other countries via the Internet. The model involves in-depth cooperation between paired teachers co-designing re-imagined courses and students collaborating in small groups to complete shared projects. COIL produces meaningful, authentic international experiences for teachers and students without the cost and extensive time away from home associated with physical mobility. For students who do have the time and resources, COIL increases interest in study abroad.
