August 20, 2013

globe

 

​ACE and the SUNY Center for Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) today announced the creation of an awards program to recognize and promote the use of technology to enhance institutional internationalization and global competence of students at U.S. colleges and universities.

The awards, which are sponsored by Asahi Net International (ANI), will highlight innovative programs and approaches in two categories: Leaders in Internationalization Through Technology, which will recognize established programs; and Advancing Internationalization Through Collaborative Online International Learning, which will recognize and offer support for emerging initiatives.

ACE and SUNY COIL are conducting a national call for submissions from institutions until Nov. 11, 2013. For more information about the award criteria and submission process, click here.

The winners in the Leaders in Internationalization Through Technology category will receive cash prizes of about $5,000 each and be announced at ACE’s 96th Annual Meeting, March 8-11, 2014, in San Diego.

The winners in the Advancing Internationalization Through Collaborative Online International Learning category will receive training and support from the SUNY COIL Center to launch globally networked courses that involve an online collaboration with an international partner institution. Recipients of this award will be announced at the 6th annual COIL conference, March 20-21, 2014, at the SUNY Global Center in New York City.

“Innovations in technology provide exciting opportunities for bringing global learning to our increasingly diverse student population and can help spur institutional internationalization,” said Patti McGill Peterson, ACE’s presidential advisor for global initiatives. “We appreciate the generous support of ANI for these awards, which will highlight the crucial role of technology in helping shape higher education internationalization.”

“Allowing students to virtually experience higher education abroad without leaving campus is a deeply innovative concept that is taking shape and putting down roots across the U.S. and internationally,” said SUNY’s Chancellor Nancy Zimpher. “The increasing popularity of new media and other online technologies, coupled with a challenging economy that may limit the affordability of travel abroad, has sparked great interest in COIL, which provides a viable alternative for students who want to engage the world and experience international learning.”

“We are thrilled to be part of this innovative award program that empowers higher education institutions’ globalization efforts,” said Takashi (Take) Takekawa, president and CEO of ANI. “We believe that internationalization of educational institutions is one of the most pressing and crucial needs in the society, and we feel honored to take part in such an important initiative.”
