Incorporating a COIL Collaboration into your existing course doesn’t require an expensive technology platform or extensive redesign of your course. It only requires an interest in effective, innovative pedagogy, a bit of flexibility and enthusiasm, and some thoughtful preparation. A well planned COIL Collaboration enhances your existing course, helps students develop curiosity about the world and a deeper understanding of their own and other cultures, bolsters 21st century skills, and provides new perspectives on course content. Our courses offered include COIL Foundations, COIL Elements, COIL Design, COIL Coordinator and COIL Administrator. For more information, on which course is running this month, visit

Each workshop starts the 2nd week of the month and runs for 3 weeks asynchronously with 3 synchronous sessions to mirror the student COIL Virtual Exchange experience. The average time spent per week is 2+ hours.
