Highly effective COIL collaborations require an active learning approach that supports students’ online professionalism, project management and development of intercultural skills. COIL Foundations provides tools that you can use to develop and facilitate a successful and rewarding COIL collaboration for you and your students.
You will examine issues of culture, language, virtual team building, partnership and the importance of reflection to develop skills.
We will specifically address how to support students’ intercultural skills online, considerations for finding and maintaining a strong relationship with your COIL teaching partner, when and how to use reflection activities, options and approaches to bridging language differences, and how to approach team building and developing trust.
This is a three week online workshop, conducted asynchronously, with one hour weekly synchronous meetings. These are interactive workshops requiring 2+ hours of work per week. If you are a professor looking to incorporate COIL into your classes, the recommended workshops are COIL Foundations, COIL Elements and COIL Design.
