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 includes sessions from both invited speakers as well as those resulting from a Call for Presentations (closed March 26). A keynote address will be given by Darla Deardorff, Executive Director of the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA).

A list of presenters, the conference agenda as well as short summaries of the sessions are now available.
