U!REKA COIL workshops in 2023

5 Dec 2022 13:49 | Communication

Teachers across the U!REKA network - are you interested in setting up a Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) project focused on a topic of your choice? Join the U!REKA COIL workshop series starting in February 2023. Work with your peers from across Europe to bring your shared idea to life in the classroom in September 2023.

Interdisciplinary collaboration via virtual exchange

The Internationalisation at Home Working Group at U!REKA is kicking off another COIL (collaborative online international learning) workshop series. Eva Haug, AUAS Educational Advisor on Internationalisation of the Curriculum and COIL, will lead the sessions.

This series gives lecturers across the U!REKA network an introduction to virtual exchange and quickly moves on to helping them find a suitable partner from another insitution. The peers work on a joint virtual exhange that incorporates this collaboration method into their courses or modules.

Workshop participants will become familiar with examples of interdisciplinary online collaboration with international partners. Even though lecturers might not be experts in this area, Eva makes sure participants are provided with a solid foundation and therefore the confidence they need to get started.

Target audience

The workshop is meant for teachers in particular. However, curriculum designers, Teaching and Learning specialists and international officers are also more than welcome to participate.

Goal: develop a new course together

During the workshop series participants aim to find a ‘match’ with another peer from the U!REKA network – the alliance of higher education institutions in Europe, spanning Belgium, Portugal, Germany, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Scotland and Finland.
