It's easy to look at our best case scenarios but what happens when things fall apart? During a 90 minute interactive Action Lab session, participants explore how to maneuver and thrive through what doesn't appear to work in a COIL collaboration, whether pedagogic, technical, intercultural or team focused breakdowns. Together, using the hive mind, we will review case studies, as well as participants’ worst fears as well as played out scenarios. We will share expertise, empower participants to brainstorm creative approaches to tackle whatever COIL throws our way. We will reflect on how seemingly failed or failing projects actually provide opportunities for learning whether about cultural differences, technologic freestyling, pedagogic improvisation or team dynamics. We will practice reviving seemingly failed collaborations, and ultimately empower COIL lecturers to utilize intercultural meta outcomes. What an opportunity …all this interaction in an Action Lab plus a Facebook group and idea repository to keep the conversation going to support the next time COIL lecturers need solutions when things fall apart.
