September 28th, 2010.
On November 3rd, 2010, COIL's Jon Rubin, Melanie Wilson and Tony Lemieux (virtually) will be delivering a pre-conference workshop at the 16th annual SLOAN-C conference in Orlando, Florida. The workshop titled Developing Collaborative Online International Courses will be using the COIL Faculty Guide for Collaborative Online International Learning Course Development as a tool to discuss key issues when collaborating across borders and develop course content.
In this workshop participants will explore the dynamics of establishing and running globally networked courses, in which university classrooms in different countries are linked together, with students collaborating cross-culturally in online project work. To facilitate this workshop the new Faculty Guide for Collaborative Online International Course Development will be used to reinforce the concepts raised during the session. We invite faculty and instructional design staff to this workshop to participate together and jointly explore the dynamics of this format of course development. We seek participants who have an active interest in developing online international courses, who might have begun to conceptualize such a course or who may already have an international partner with whom they want to work. However, within the workshop we will discuss partnering and course development, so those who are just now thinking about this modality are also welcome.
