What is COIL?

COIL stands for Collaborative On-Line International Learning. Coordinated by the State University New York (SUNY) it is a learning and teaching approach that uses internet-based tools and innovative on-line pedagogies to connect students and staff from universities in different countries. Integrated into the taught curriculum at module level it aims to enhance the intercultural competence of academics and their students. GCU is one of COIL's 17 Global Network Partners.
