COIL Information & Registration

The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley is hosting an international workshop:

Crossing Borders Virtually: a COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) Workshop

COIL is a powerful pedagogical tool that has the potential to unite students in South Texas and Northern Mexico. COIL creates equitable, team-taught online learning environments where professors from two cultures work together to develop a shared syllabus, emphasizing experiential and collaborative student learning. These exchanges are embedded in existing courses with traditional face-to-face sessions taking place at both schools, while the collaborative student work takes place online. These collaborations typically last from 4-6 weeks.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide faculty and administrators with the tools necessary to implement COIL. Participation from both US and Mexican institutions will provide the opportunity for them to work together to create joint COIL courses for Fall 2019 and Spring 2020.
