Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) – also known as international virtual exchange, is a pedagogical approach that fosters global exchange and understanding through online learning environments. Started at The State University of New York and now in practice at hundreds of universities around the world, COIL connects learners across time and space, without leaving their home campus.
At the University of Washington, COIL began at UW Bothell, with UW Tacoma signing on in year two as co-PI of a generous grant from the UW Seattle’s Jackson School of International Studies.
