Internationalization through Technology: The Glenville State College and University of Oviedo Collaboration
Collaboration between Glenville State College in West Virginia and Spain’s University of Oviedo demonstrates that using technology to connect students in two countries can be an effective, affordable, and scalable way to deliver global learning. Faculty who pioneered this partnership using the Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) method will share their experiences developing a joint syllabus, designing assignments for U.S. and Spanish students, navigating cultural differences, assessing outcomes, and developing their own strengths as globally-engaged faculty. The collaboration began in 2014 as part of the American Council on Education (ACE)–SUNY COIL Center Internationalization through Technology Awards Program.
