Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL)
Building upon FIU’s deep experience creating hundreds of impactful global learning courses across the curriculum, FIU COIL utilizes technology and the Internet to connect students and faculty with their peers across national borders.
COIL (pioneered by SUNY) brings diverse faculty and students together--across borders of time, space, language, culture, and discipline--to engage in intercultural dialogue and meaningful projects. COIL deepens knowledge, broadens perspectives, fosters personal growth, and opens doors to new connections and opportunities for students and faculty alike.
Since COIL is embedded within the curriculum, participating students gain access to the world and its diversity without incurring any additional cost.
