Tools & Tips for Virtual Education Programs:
An Introduction to Collaborative Online International Education (COIL) and 100K Partnerships

June 25, 2020

In this special webinar, the 100,000 Strong in the Americas Innovation Fund team gathered experts to discuss cutting edge practices in virtual/online program development and delivery.

Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), which was developed at the State University of New York (SUNY), is an approach that brings students and professors together across cultures to learn, discuss and collaborate as part of their class. Professors partner to design the experience and students partner to complete the activities designed. COIL becomes part of the class, enabling all students to have a significant intercultural experience within their course of study.

Panelists included 100K program leaders from various higher education institutions to share lessons learned and best practices in developing virtual learning and exchange experiences for students in the Americas.
