Many courses across the UW Bothell curriculum and the research of our faculty emphasize a global perspective. One of our signature programs it the UW COIL Initiative, an effort to deepen global engagement of students in the classroom, without requiring travel abroad, by implementing online collaboration with international partners. Above: Students in BCUSP 131: Social Media and Global Change engaged with peers from the Central University of Tibetan Studies in Varenasi, India.
UW Bothell instructors are invited to submit a proposal to implement COIL into a new or existing course. Up to $1,200 in funds, and targeted support, is available for each project selected. Apply by February 8, 2017.
The Fall 2016 issue of IIE Networker magazine focuses on virtual exchange. “Initiating and Sustaining University-Wide COIL Programs: Steps to Success” features the work of UW Bothell in implementing globally connected courses using technology throughout the curriculum.
