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).
