COIL Institute Publications

To our knowledge the documents that came from the COIL Institute represent the first detailed analysis of globally networked learning projects on a large scale. As part of our efforts to capture the results of the course development and implementation experiences of the 100+ Institute Fellows, SUNY COIL staff and COIL Institute staff guided each of the 24 teams that fully implemented a COIL course in completing a detailed case study describing the outcomes of their 18-month initiative. Fellows were given an online template and asked to collaboratively complete the 59 questions divided into 10 sections. Where possible, they were also asked to provide extra documentation such as syllabi, student work, etc. The aim of the case studies was to not only help the Fellows learn more about each other's work, but to also serve as valuable resources for future developers of globally networked courses. 24 out of the 26 teams completed the majority of the template, while nearly half provided extra documents. Most teams carried out the task collaboratively, whereas a few case studies only have the ‘voice’ of one or two team members (usually the US-based faculty member). A case study narrative was also completed by one faculty member whose partnership did not move forward to a successful collaboration (see India-USA).

What do you want to do?

Note: Most language used in the case studies has been left in the authors’ original words. However, in some cases minimal editing was carried out during the compilation of the case studies.
