How Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) Fosters Language and Intercultural Skills

In our interconnected and interdependent world, students need to develop an intercultural view of global challenges and their local implications. Students also need the skills to deal with these challenges responsibly, creatively, and collectively.

“The world is our classroom; the sky is the limit”: these metaphors describe the almost unlimited variety of possibilities for collaborative teaching and learning across geographic, cultural, and even subject boundaries. In this IALLT webinar, you will:

– learn how COIL/VE enhances language learning at all levels
– hear about the benefits and limits of COIL/VE scenarios which have already been implemented in higher education language courses
– come into contact with other language instructors who are interested in developing COIL/VE scenarios
