Thinking Differently about Teaching and Learning:


As the world becomes increasingly networked, higher education institutions seek ways to better prepare students to thrive in cross-cultural academic and professional environments. By reimagining education as a networked phenomenon, Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL)* has emerged as an innovative response to this need. In COIL courses, faculty from across borders co-create learning environments in which students gain valuable technological and cross-cultural competence, as well as hands-on experience collaborating with international peers. With continued expansion of practice, and growth of research on the COIL model across institutions, this year's conference will explore paths through which COIL is reaching new audiences, new regions, and new networks.

*The acronym COIL is used to refer to any pedagogical activities that use technology to link classrooms and students in geographically distant locations through coursework. Among the other terms used to describe such activity are globally networked learning, telecollaboration, online intercultural exchange, virtual exchange, virtual mobility, and Exchange 2.0.
