A New Approach to Student-Centered Internationalization:
For many higher education institutions, the goal of broadly integrating intercultural or global dimensions into the curriculum has been a hard goal to achieve. However, in recent years a new teaching and learning methodology known as Globally Networked Learning (GNL) has emerged providing an innovative and cost-effective internationalization method for fostering exchange between faculty and students with peers in other countries through Internet-based tools. More about the COIL Conference:
The annual conference brings together faculty, international programs staff, instructional technology staff, and university and college administrators from SUNY, across the U.S. and around the world to share experiences and innovative GNL models and best practices. The year's conference agenda will include sessions focused on application of educational technology to internationalization as well as the role of globally networked learning from both invited speakers as well as those resulting from a Call for Presentations (due March 26) on the following themes:
  • Growing and Sustaining Globally Networked Learning Initiatives
  • Role of GNL in Integrating Intercultural or Global Dimensions into the Curriculum
  • Supporting the Faculty and Institutional Partnering Process
  • Application of Educational Technology to Internationalization
  • Fostering and Evaluating Student Cross-cultural Competence
  • Globally Networked Classrooms as Portals to Increased Study Abroad Participation
  • Initial outcomes of the COIL Institute for Globally Networked Learning in the Humanities
