For a decade the SUNY COIL Center has been reimagining education as a globally networked phenomenon. Collaborative Online International Learning* links faculty across borders to co-create learning environments in which students gain valuable digital and cross-cultural competencies through collaboration with international peers. We have in parallel expanded the landscape of higher education institutions at SUNY, across the US and the world who are internationalizing their curricula by implementing the COIL model to benefit their students, as well as their faculty and staff.
Our own networks have grown from a handful of loosely participating campuses in 2006 to over 50 committed member institutions working to normalize this model. At this, our tenth anniversary conference, we gather together to reflect on the evolution of the field, to celebrate accomplishments, to welcome new practitioners to our networks, and to investigate what new directions the next ten years may bring.
*COIL is used to refer to pedagogical activities using technology to link classrooms and students in geographically distant locations through coursework. Other terms describing such activities are virtual exchange, virtual mobility, globally networked learning, telecollaboration, and online intercultural exchange.
