CONAHEC-COIL International Faculty Collaboration
for Teaching Climate Resilience
Application deadline: June 15, 2018
The climate and its impact on our planet and civilization is a defining challenge of the 21st century. Higher education institutions have a great deal of power to shape how humanity responds. The Consortium for North American Higher Education Collaboration (CONAHEC) and the State University of New York’s COIL Center have created of the International Faculty Collaboration for teaching climate resilience to help higher education institutions share knowledge and impart solutions by building and strengthening international higher education partnerships. This program will match teaching faculty with an international faculty partner, support the organization of reciprocal visits for faculty pairs, and deliver an online professional development and mentoring experience for faculty to co-develop and co-teach a collaborative online international learning (COIL) module related to climate resilience in one of their existing classes. We welcome faculty members in any discipline. No prior teaching experience in climate resilience necessary.
We are pleased to offer institutions and faculty this professional development and international partnership opportunity that will provide meaningful interaction with international peers at a low and sustainable cost.
