Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) is a global learning initiative supported by the Division of Academic Affairs and the Center for Teaching and Learning at LaGuardia Community College. Modeled after SUNY COIL, it is a teaching method that facilitates students’ global awareness, cross-cultural and cross-linguistic communication through interactive online practices. COIL faculty in any discipline can connect their courses with courses abroad using digital tools, such as video chat and web blogs. Since the program’s inception at LaGuardia in Fall 2016, fourteen courses have benefited from COIL projects with colleges and universities in Russia, Nicaragua, Morocco, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Colombia, and French Guiana.
