Eriko Heise and David Jahnke collaborated for the first time to design and implement a 6-week long interdisciplinary COIL module into our courses.  Their courses were an introductory biology with food science emphasis (SUNY-Corning Community College) and a cooking technique course (University of Celaya, Mexico).  During the six weeks, their students learned the subjects necessary for collaboration in class and though online activities and collaborated for two projects: 1) creating an umami-enhancing recipe, and 2) creating an American/Mexican fusion recipe.  Heise and Jahnke used online technologies including Blackboard, Facebook Group, Facebook Messenger, and Skype for live video streaming of students’ class activities to enhance communication among the students.  Through their collaborations, the students were able to integrate pure and applied sciences and develop appreciation for different food cultures.
