International Course Collaboration
We invite you to join us in an effort to deepen global engagement of students in the classroom, without requiring travel abroad, by implementing project-based online collaboration within existing courses. Since 2013, the University of Washington Bothell has been implementing an initiative that connects classes on our campus to those in Egypt, India, Peru, South Africa and others.

* COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) is an approach to fostering global competence through development of a multicultural learning environment that links university classes in different countries. Using various communication technologies, students from different countries complete shared assignments and projects, with faculty members from each country co-teaching and managing coursework.
Technology-enabled global engagement is a growing internationalization trend, as highlighted in a recent article published by NAFSA on this topic, "New Windows on the World" by Christopher Connell, NAFSA International Educator, May/June 2014.
