Collaborative Online International Learning

Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) uses digital technology and the Internet to connect faculty and students internationally and interculturally. Faculty work together to create a common set of assignments, and students cooperate to exchange ideas, solve problems, and share their unique cultural viewpoints. COIL is part of UNA’s “Global Learning for All” initiative, which is directly tied to UNA’s 2019-2024 Strategic Plan.

The UNA COIL Fellows Program recognizes faculty who collaborate with colleagues around the world to create engaging and meaningful intercultural classroom experiences for their students.
