This workshop is organized by UNC Global Affairs. 


Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) is a flexible pedagogical approach to global education. First developed by the State University of New York (SUNY), COIL can be embedded into course curricula in order to connect faculty and students from across the world through shared learning experiences and global, cross-institutional collaboration. 


COIL courses involve shared learning between students in a course at UNC-Chapel Hill and peer students at a global partner university. Faculty members at both institutions design collaborative activities for their students lasting at least three weeks, such as completing small group projects, engaging in dialogue drawing on their different societal or disciplinary perspectives, or exchanging scholarly or creative work. 

Learn more about COIL at Carolina and about the support and resources available to UNC-Chapel Hill faculty.
