The SUNY COIL Center is a leader in the emerging field of Globally Networked Learning (GNL); a teaching and learning methodology which provides innovative cost-effective internationalization strategies. GNL programs foster faculty and student exchange with peers abroad through co-taught multicultural online and blended learning environments that emphasize experiential collaboration.

COIL’s annual conference brings together faculty, international educators, instructional technologists, and university and college administrators from SUNY, across the U.S. and around the world to share their experiences developing globally networked learning courses, initiatives and best practices. This year’s conference will include sessions from invited speakers and from a CFP (see below).


4th COIL Conference Themes

  • Growing and Sustaining Globally Networked Learning Initiatives
  • Role of GNL in Integrating Intercultural and/or Global Dimensions into the Curriculum
  • Supporting the Faculty and Institutional Partnering Process
  • Fostering and Evaluating Student Cross-cultural Competence
  • GNL Classes as Portals to Increased Study Abroad Participation
  • Initial Outcomes of the COIL Institute for Globally Networked Learning in the Humanities




Call for Presentations

For the first time we are inviting proposals for presentations that broadly support this year’s conference themes; including individual presentations, panels, mini-workshops, or alternative innovative formats (including those utilizing videoconferencing and other technologies). Joint proposals from cross-department and/or inter-institutional teams, those which include substantial audience participation, or which bring in student perspectives are particularly encouraged.

Proposals are due March 26, 2012. Detailed requirements can be found on the conference website.
