Collaborative Online International Learning(COIL) Virtual Exchange Project: Internationalizing the campus and increasing global connectivity

Algoma University is piloting Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) Virtual Exchange as a new mobility-focused innovation project. The goal of this project is to develop COIL-based courses that improve accessibility and participation, especially among under-represented student groups, providing an innovative virtual intercultural learning experience. Although virtual exchange programs are different from the real-life experiences of traditional exchange and study abroad programs, through COIL, students are provided with an opportunity to work together in diverse teams and develop intercultural and problem-solving skills that helps them be interculturally competent individuals in a global workforce setting.
