Session VIRT02

COIL as a tool for international cooperation, mobility and Internationalisation at Home

How can Collaborative Online International Learning extend and deepen international collaboration? In what ways do COIL and other forms of virtual exchange prepare students for physical mobility and at the same time contribute to Internationalisation at Home? In this session, we will discuss concrete examples of how COIL contributes to and enhances other forms of international collaboration. Our speakers have broad and varied experiences of using COIL in this context.

This session will be available to watch on-demand and will be broadcast during the virtual programme on Tuesday, 26 September at 14:00 CEST.
