New generations are becoming increasingly aware of being, not only citizens of their own communities, but also citizens of the world. They are aware of the interconnection between different countries at the social, political, economic and professional levels.
Therefore, high education Institutions face the challenge of providing their students with experiences that allow them to develop this kind of skills and knowledge, regardless of their professional area.
To extend the internationalization program, La Salle University joins the SUNY effort through the COIL Center to promote the creation of international collaborative courses with the support of technologies and to provide those students that cannot participate in an exchange program to acquire the intercultural skills and global competences in all its curricular programs.
In particular in La Salle México we have a COIL course that have been active for five consecutive periods. The course is “Seminario de Temas Contemporáneos de Comunciación”.
In order to COIL to succeed it must have a continuity within the course, the students would like to enroll to that course, because from quantitative results they have know the benefits, and also from voice to voice they have heard the benefits. If COIL happens only once in a course, it eventually will be forgotten.
