COIL for Faculty

Collaborative Online International Learning

Internationalize the Curriculum by COILing your Course!

Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) brings together Fredonia faculty with international colleagues to co-create opportunities for their students to collaborate via online technologies, as part of the face-to-face classroom experience.

COIL Course Orientation

The COIL Course Orientation (CCO) is a fully online set of modules completed over 5 weeks to prepare faculty members for partnering and COILing a course.
Time Commitment: Approximately 2-3 hours per week for 5 weeks. CCOs are selective and are held primarily in the summer break periods. 

Once a faculty member completes a CCO, they can use the SUNY Coil Networks to create a profile and find a partner within the SUNY COIL Global Network.  The partnering process is the primary means by which faculty can apply for one of the funded COIL opportunities.
