The SUNY COIL Center’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 (GNL) courses, initiatives and best practices. GNL is a teaching and learning methodology which provides innovative and 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.

This year’s conference will include sessions from invited speakers and from an international CFP (see below).

5th COIL Conference Themes and Topics include:

  • Student Perspectives and Voices from Globally Networked Learning Courses
  • Role of GNL in Integrating Intercultural and/or Global Dimensions into the Curriculum
  • GNL Courses as Portals for Increased Participation in Study Abroad
  • How is Intercultural Exchange Transformed in the Online Environment?
  • Outcomes from the COIL Institute for Globally Networked Learning in the Humanities
  • GNL Moves Outside the Humanities: Examples from the STEM, Business and Applied Fields
  • Is Globally Networked Learning the Beating Heart of Curricular Internationalization?
  • Integrating Real-time Tools into Asynchronous International Courses
  • Utilizing GNL and Technology to support Language Learning
  • We’ve Taught the GNL Course, but My Institution Doesn’t Know What to do Next!


Call for Presentations

We invite proposals that broadly support this year’s conference themes for presentations in a range of formats. Joint proposals, including those within and across departments and/or inter-institutional partners. Those which include substantial audience participation, or panels which bring in student perspectives are particularly encouraged. Possible presentation types include:

  • Panels (30-60 minutes)
  • Roundtable Discussion Panels (up to 60 minutes)
  • Debates (30-60 minutes)
  • Individual Presentations (20 minutes)
  • Mini-Workshops (including ones focused on participant input around a topic, up to 60 minutes)

Any session can be designed to include remote presenters via videoconference or other technologies. Be creative in proposing presentation formats, as alternative and innovative formats are highly encouraged.

Proposals are due February 8, 2013.

Detailed information and requirements for the CFP can be found on the conference website.
