After almost 11 years since founding and directing the SUNY COIL Center, Jon Rubin will be retiring this spring to become an independent consultant. SUNY has opened a national search to find his successor to lead the COIL Center's innovative and award winning work in curricular internationalization. We are now accepting applications and the Director job description is linked below.
The COIL Center is a leader in the emerging field of collaborative online international learning, a teaching and learning methodology that fosters exchange between faculty and students with peers abroad through Internet-based communication tools. The COIL Center has created a model for supporting professors who develop co-taught multi-cultural online learning environments which emphasizes experiential collaborative learning between students in two or more countries. The classes may be fully online or taught in blended formats with face-to-face sessions at both schools, while collaborative student work takes place online. We presently work with over 60 partner campuses at SUNY and internationally.
