Description

Join this information session to learn about UW Bothell COIL Fellowships. Please email Natalia Dyba, Director of Global Initiatives to RSVP, nataliak@uw.edu

UW Bothell is spearheading a UW-wide effort to deepen global engagement of students in the classroom, without requiring travel abroad, by implementing online collaboration with international partners. The COIL Fellows program is designed to support UW faculty to develop Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) courses. The initiative is overseen by Global Initiatives on the Bothell campus and was launched with seed funding from the UW Jackson School of International Studies. UW Tacoma, as well as several schools on the Seattle campus, are launching their own COIL faculty support programs.

COIL is an approach to fostering global competence through development of a multicultural learning environment that links university classes in different countries. Using various online communication technologies, students from different countries complete shared assignments and projects, with faculty members from each country co-teaching and managing coursework.

UW COIL Fellows participate in community of practice meetings to deepen learning and facilitate the sharing of ideas, resources and strategies. At the conclusion of their course development, Fellows submit written documentation of their partnership and typically contribute to a group presentation.
