In September 2018, Dr. McCoy and Professor Tshibangu, will implement the third revision (3.0) of their COIL International Joint Venture project. They were part of the 2016 Mexico-USA Multistate COIL Program (MCP). Their presentation will focus on how their project and partnership has evolved over the last two years.
They will discussed the challenges they faced while implementing the first version of the project; lessons learned such as the importance of being flexible, simplifying instructions, streaming the communications process and giving students more time to get to know their international partners. Both instructors continue to build on what they learned in order to enhance the international learning experience for their students. As educators, they have also benefited from their COIL experience personally and professionally. They have learned from each other’s differences, and having an open mind during the development of their COIL Module led to a positive and informative exchange.
Their presentation will outline the collaborative tools they employed during their first COIL Module. How they used, Blackboard, Facebook and Google Docs. What worked well? What were some of the mistakes made? The second version of the COIL project implemented in fall 2017, took these successes and failures into account. New and seasoned COILers will find this information especially helpful.
They will also discuss they type of support they received from their institutions in the area of Library Services, and the Virtual Campus Center.
Fall 2018, will be another opportunity to build on what they learned. They will discuss the Collaborative online tools they plan to use and why. For example, Facebook, WhatsApp, Slack and Zoom.
