About Virtual Exchange and COIL

Virtual exchanges (VE) and Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) are educational approaches that use technology to facilitate people-to-people interactions and intercultural dialogue between individuals or groups who are geographically separated and/or from different cultural backgrounds.

Both VE and COIL offer essential benefits for enhancing global education. They foster intercultural competence by immersing students in diverse cultures, promoting understanding, and building global awareness. Both VE and COIL globalize curricula, integrating project-based learning with an international lens, thus developing students' digital literacy and professional skills. These approaches enable students to connect globally, breaking geographical barriers and enriching their academic experience. They also prepare students for virtual teamwork and enhance communication skills, making them valuable assets in a globally interconnected world. For faculty, these programs offer opportunities for professional development and foster institutional partnerships. Additionally, VE and COIL complement physical exchange programs, extending the reach and depth of international education to a wider student population.
