Virtual Exchange (VE), including one of its most comprehensive forms, Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), is an innovative educational model for providing students with global competencies that complement traditional forms of physical mobility and academic exchange. COIL involves developing and utilizing novel teaching approaches to foster online student and faculty collaboration. The COIL approach connects students and classrooms around the world through co-taught multicultural and blended online coursework that bridges physical distance. This webinar will feature examples of campuses around the world that are intentionally designing and implementing VE/COIL to meet student learning goals and outcomes. Please join us for a discussion with faculty and administrators as they reflect on their own professional VE/COIL practices and imagine new ways of approaching teaching and learning in the twenty-first-century classroom.
