Virtual: Intro to COIL Workshop for Faculty
February 17 at 9:30 am - 10:45 am
The Office of the Vice Provost for Global Affairs is hosting a workshop for faculty interested in participating in the Connecting Carolina Classrooms with the World initiative to incorporate Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) activities into their courses. The workshop is 9:30-10:45 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 17, via Zoom.
This workshop will include:
• An introduction to COIL, a flexible pedagogical approach that allows instructors to partner with peers from across the world to develop collaborative activities that connect their students and meet the original learning objectives of each course, even across different disciplines.
• Breakout discussions to facilitate development of potential activities utilizing COIL in faculty members’ respective courses. Participants will share initial ideas on partners, activities and considerations for adapting courses to incorporate COIL activities.
• Program development resources and information on available funding for UNC faculty and graduate students. Faculty are eligible to receive curriculum development awards for undergraduate or graduate level courses. Award deadline: March 5, 2022.
All UNC faculty are welcome to participate in the workshop.
COIL courses are eligible to fulfill the Experiential Education requirement, pending individual course approval.
Faculty who are interesting in incorporating COIL components into a course but who need support identifying a partner are encouraged to join the workshop and can work with the Office of the Vice Provost for Global Affairs to seek a potential partner.
Registration is required.
