Cultivating Global Citizenship Through the COIL Model
Many university faculty are now embedding into existing courses an effective teaching strategy called Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) to provide all students with direct experiences in problem-solving on global teams. This panel will present a case study from a COIL course called “The Great Debates East and West,” which discusses how students combine online discussions, live video conferencing, and student-produced videos to co-produce final products based on their small team global collaborations. Two of the three panelists will be video-conferenced in to demonstrate application of some of the principles for doing this work effectively in the classroom. You will leave this session with practical examples and models for how to tailor the COIL teaching strategies to a wide range of course departments and discipline.
