UW Bothell Hosted Second Annual Symposium on Global Engagement through Technology
The symposium brought together over 50 faculty and administrators from 22 institutions in the Pacific Northwest and beyond to discuss how we can expand access to global learning opportunities using technology. The program highlighted the UW Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) Initiative and provided hands-on experience with several easily accessible technology tools to facilitate engagement across boundaries. Participants enjoyed ample networking opportunities to share best practices and create a physical and virtual learning community.
