Virtual Exchange Partners
Collaborative Online Intercultural Learning (COIL), also called Virtual Exchange (VE), is a method for connecting faculty and their students with peers in other countries via the internet. The model involves in-depth cooperation between paired faculty co-designing parts of courses (to entire courses) and students collaborating in small groups to complete shared projects. COIL-VE produces meaningful, authentic international experiences for faculty and students without the cost and extensive time away from home. For students, COIL-VE increases interest in study abroad. For faculty, COIL-VE increases international faculty collaboration and future short-term exchanges.
A COIL-VE curriculum component may be a student project that takes as little as 4 weeks. There are many different types of COIL-VE projects. Examples include: a marketing or business plan, research, service learning, work on a local or global company from two or more country perspectives, providing real life experience, any global issue etc.
Langara’s Centre for Intercultural Engagement (CIE) has created a COIL-VE Community of Practice to support Faculty engaged in virtual exchange. This includes workshop training sessions for Faculty partners from external institutions to support the development of joint virtual student learning projects.
Contact the CIE for more information and for support in finding a faculty partner.
