Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) Faculty Learning Community

Jan 11, 2021

Cofacilitated by RSECS Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies and Teaching Associate Professor Breigh Roszelle and Executive Director for Internationalization Casey Dinger, this collaborative Faculty Learning Community is structured around stand-alone readings and materials. Participants will take turns leading the discussion using key theoretical and applied materials supplied by the facilitators to provide a grounding in the approach and tools to implement.

This FLC is organized around exploring the practice, development, and implementation of a Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL)-based course. This can take numerous forms, but in essence COIL is a type of virtual mobility, where students from DU and a partner institution abroad are given the tools and space to engage in purposeful interaction in a course. 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 students work together on a project, engage in class discussions, or participate in similar group work. COIL is a powerful opportunity to help students engage in cross-cultural learning and global education on DU’s home campus.
