COIL projects must be part of a larger curricular initiative at the level of the university classroom before internationalization goals can become programmatic. After five COIL projects, a Fulbright-Hays grant, and a Global Teacher Education Fellowship, the presenter will demonstrate the advancement of her work with preservice teachers. This presentation will provide a process by showing how one teacher educator worked to create a global curriculum in a required course. The presenter will offer a strategic and practical approach to internationalize a course that includes COIL as one of many areas of focus. The presenter will share how she incorporated activities that complement a COIL project, integrated a variety of new global texts, and revised previous assignments and assessments to meet the goal of internationalization by focusing on the development of global dispositions.
