The SUNY Cooperative Online International Learning (COIL) initiative is designed to support the development of classes in which students in domestic classes interact in a meaningful manner with students from a partner class in a foreign country. Student interaction may be synchronous or asynchronous and relies on a variety of web 2.0 tools (including wikis, blogs, Nings, course management systems, Skype, Google talk, Google Docs, VoiceThread, YouTube, Vimeo, Imgur, and Picasa). A number of faculty at Oswego have expressed an interest in developing COIL classes. We expect to have at least three COIL classes offered during the 2012-2013 academic year.
In this workshop, John Kane (and perhaps some of those preparing COIL classes) will provide an overview of COIL and discuss how to get started in using this approach in new or existing courses. The primary focus of this workshop will be on setting up a relationship with a foreign faculty partner.
