Internationalization Through Technology

December 30, 1899

 

​An award program presented by the American Council on Education in collaboration with the SUNY COIL Center

ACE and the SUNY COIL Center are collaborating to present an awards program to recognize, support, and promote the use of technology to enhance institutional internationalization and global competence among students at U.S. colleges and universities. Technology holds great promise for strengthening institutional global engagement through meaningful international collaborations for faculty and staff, and for providing students with experiences and opportunities through which they may acquire global competencies—the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to live and work in a multicultural and interconnected world.

ACE and SUNY COIL conducted a national call for submissions to recognize innovative programs and approaches, and a review committee selected three award recipients in each of two categories:

1) Leaders in Internationalization through Technology.

2) Advancing Internationalization through Collaborative Online International Learning
 

Award Descriptions
Category 1: Leaders in Internationalization through Technology

This award recognizes institutions that have formed structures, policies, and practices that capitalize on technology to advance and support internationalization and that can demonstrate the impact these have had on the development of students' global competencies. An articulated institutional commitment along with the proper administrative structure and staffing, the deep involvement of faculty, and supportive policies and practices are key indicators of a campus's success at achieving a higher level of comprehensive internationalization; this award adds the effective use of technology to this list.

Leaders in Internationalization through Technology awards were presented March 10, 2014 at ACE's 96th Annual Meeting in San Diego to Great Lakes College Association, Mount Holyoke College (MA), and SUNY Cortland.

Category 2: Advancing Internationalization through Collaborative Online International Learning

This award recognize institutions that have demonstrated a vision for and commitment to enhancing curricular internationalization through the use of technology, specifically collaborative online international learning. Also known as globally networked learning, virtual exchange, virtual mobility, and telecollaboration, collaborative online international learning is an innovative approach to teaching and learning that provides faculty and students the ability to collaborate with peers internationally through the use of online communication tools. Recipients of this award have demonstrated their capability and commitment to develop and implement collaborative online international courses that align with the model developed by the SUNY COIL Center.

Advancing Internationalization through Collaborative Online International Learning awards were presented March 21, 2014 at the 6th COIL Conference in New York to Fayetteville State University (NC), Glenville State College (WV), and Xavier University (OH).
