COIL (collaborative online international learning) has become one of the most-applied experiential learning tools since the outbreak of COVID. By stimulating international/intercultural interactions amongst students from different cultural backgrounds who are located in different parts of the world it develops Cultural intelligence which enables individuals to work effectively in multicultural environments. Amsterdam School of International Business from Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences has implemented COIL as a mandatory component throughout their curriculum which contains three stages of Basic, Advanced, and Professional. We are expected to work more remotely and globally in the future so the implementation of COIL in the curriculum of higher education becomes crucial.
This session will explain you about how COIL relates to developing one’s Cultural Intelligence. While introducing the built up of their curriculum the presenter will share her experiences in setting up and carrying out 27 COIL projects for the last 5 academic years. At the end of the presentation participants are able to get more practical insights into how to design and execute new and/or existing COIL projects further within their own institutions.
