Introduction to COIL for Business

Learn how to bring collaborative online international learning (COIL) to your course by attending this energizing event. 

Content will include the WHY of COIL for business classes, examples of COIL projects, benefits to business students across the globe, the COIL design sequence – and resources for finding an international partner to work with. COIL is an innovative pedagogy that brings students and faculty together in online platforms to work collaboratively on experiential projects. It is an inclusive pedagogy that expands access to experiential global learning, enables students to practice in-demand skills in virtual and multinational teaming, and encourages skills development in cross-cultural communication.

Faculty from GBSN institutions interested in delivering a COIL class are invited to attend one of two information sessions on September 15 and October 20, 2023 at 12pm EDT. Faculty will have the opportunity to be matched with faculty from another institution for COIL course development. A guided design sprint will be offered to select faculty pairs in spring 2024. The goal of the program is to support faculty connections and adoption of COIL pedagogy for teaching. The program is sponsored by the Title VI CIBER COIL Network through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
