Question 41

41. Do you expect that your work will result in other globally networked courses being offered in the near future at any of the partnered institutions? If so, please discuss any such plans.

I think that there might be other COIL courses in other disciplines. I do not know about the performing arts. I would love to be able to engage in ongoing international collaborations. However, the conditions have to change at CCC. Currently, there are no plans under discussion.

We are currently engaged in a new course, that has a different dynamic, taking into consideration some of the lessons learnt in the first collaboration.  We will continue to gain feedback from students to also plan future globally networked courses.  At UB, in my department I have engaged other faculty members who seem to be interested in doing the same.  If given the time and resources, I plan to develop workshops based on my own limited knowledge and experiences; but I think the ideal situation would be for others in my department to possibly become fellows in COIL.  

Prof. Guerra and I plan on offering another COIL course in spring 2014, and I am interested in facilitating the development of new COIL partnerships between CCC faculty and other international institutions, including UB.

Yes, this course was referred to at the UVIC Senate’s Learning and Teaching committee, as Dr. Aragon sits on the committee. 

Dr. Gupta-Carlson has been offering a US History Since 1865 course to students at Nanjing University in China, via ESC’s international programs, and has floated possibilities of creating networked courses with instructors in India. She is unlikely to aggressively pursue these initiatives in the short-term future, however, because of other scholarly commitments.

The possibility of additional sections at other branch locations are being explored. RIT has degree-granting relationships with a number of institutions. 

Pam is working on another course for 2014.

Clarke: No, at the moment it was a one-time event. It effectively illuminated both the possibilities of and the impediments to such a pedagogy. A lot hangs on the sheer contingencies of scheduling, and when going east-west these can be particularly difficult to negotiate. It may well be much easier, in the Americas, to go north-south. 

Vanderbeke: Courses are not repeated in our institute. I would very much like to take part in other international courses - certainly with Bruce Clarke, but also with other instructors. However, the problems of different semester schedules in Germany and America will probably render such collaborations an exception.

Expectations are low that other globally networked courses will take place at Swarthmore, however, our tricollege consortium colleagues at Bryn Mawr are running such a course, entitled Global Shakespeare with a partner institution in Japan through the tricollege Digital Humanities initiative. It also supported Re-Envisioning Diasporas.

Gerry Bergtrom in the UWM Learning Technology Center is already planning a course that would be heavily based on the COIL model and ideology.

I have just finished the first trial and there is no specific other courses being offered until 2013 fall, but team San Jose is thinking to promote this kind of globally networked courses not only to other faculty members within SJSU and Kagoshima university, but also other countries. One of candidates is Pakistan now.  Also, I will cooperate with the cross cultural communication class in Kagoshima University next Fall. 

As part of the Pakistan grant, SJSU will be offering numerous COIL style course opportunities where SJSU and AIOU students will work together to build multicultural competencies in the domains of Computer Science and Education (see our website: http://sjsuaiou.wordpress.com/).

KGU has expressed interest in continuing globally networked courses, and the Dean of International and Extended Studies have expressed and encouraged expansion of the globally networked courses.

At this point, there are no plans for other globally-networked courses to be offered by the Fellows outside of the current one.  Both institutions seem interested in continuing to foster  this type of learning environment and this partnership course has aided in solidifying that commitment.  

Buffalo State-at this point, we don’t know.  Our campus online committee--to which both Beth and I belong--has not acted on our presentation of the course (over a year ago).  Also, the international education office has been understaffed and leadership has been in flux.  A new assistant dean has been hired, but we do not know his priorities at this time.

COIL Faculty Fellows ran a CELT sponsored brown bag session at Brockport discussing their COIL work. This session included presentations from both Brockport COIL faculty and video-conference presentation from COIL faculty in Novgorod.     Brockport faculty in attendance at the brown bag session expressed high level interest in offering this type of collaborative course. Additionally, COIL faculty fellows have proposed workshops to present their COIL course at The National Women’s Studies  Association (NWSA) Conference in November 2013 and at the SUNY COIL Conference in April 2013. These workshops are designed to inform other institutions about our COIL work, and importantly, to  model  ways faculty/staff at other institutions can replicate this international, collaborative   teaching/learning paradigm.

 The Brockport/Novgorod team would love to consider opportunities for future collaboration. Faculty LeSavoy and Pearlman are being supported to travel to Novgorod in March 2013 to further study and sustain their COIL collaboration. Additional possibilities to present and replicate our COIL work are being considered.  One area of  interest is the International Media Ecology Conference, and also, a  scholarly paper on our work is in the conceptualization phase with research and writing planned for spring/summer 2013.

Yes, the work of Profs. Barnes and Filatova has already generated similar courses in Mason. Another course on human rights and inequalities partnered with the Higher School of Economics also took place in Fall 2012. Other globally networked linked courses are being planned and discussed.

Yes, at SUNY Geneseo, a few faculty members are in the process of proposing a globally networked course. 

At MSU, Mira is currently participating in another globally networked course. 

RAMA: The results of the program are expected to be carried over into new globally networked coursed in the future

NCCU:  Yes, we will use the lessons learned in this pilot project and secure funding and invite faculty to use our course design as a template for future courses both in our Department of Music, and in the College of Liberal Arts.

Sokjin is expected strongly. Kelli agrees. We will collaborate again in the future. We are not yet sure of the actual means of collaboration at this time.

I hope very much, as I think this experience has been extremely rewarding and enriching for our students and all involved. (US)

ULPGC: our work will have, and already had, an impact on our teaching. What we learned from this experience can be used in F2F teaching as well. To motivate students, to engage them in significant common work, to foster intercultural awareness are our goals, online or F2F.

Yes. One Cortland faculty member in the Economics Department has expressed interest. Emre Demirci at Anadolu University is planning to offer such a course. Vicki Boynton from the English Department at SUNY Cortland is currently offering such a course from Anadolu University.
