Expanding Global Reach With Technology
The use of COIL activities has allowed SUNY to reach both U.S.
and Turkish students who are unable to participate in the mobility
aspects of the dual-degree programs.
"We aim to promote global learning for all, so the scalability
question is really important to SUNY," says Mary Lou Forward,
director of SUNY's COIL Center. Students and faculty "who
can't go abroad can still get significant international experiences
through COIL."
For example, one of the SUNY campuses runs a degree program in English as a second language (ESL) education whereby
U.S. students teach ESL online to Turkish students who are trying
to improve their English before coming to the United States.
Forward says that scaling COIL activities can also help
institutions develop deeper partnerships over time. She points
to the example of Ulster Community College in New York,
which recently signed an institutional cooperation agreement
with Universidad La Salle Noroeste (ULSA Noroeste) near
Sonora, Mexico.
"It started with just a couple of professors partnering [on
individual classes]," Forward says. "As they talked about it, it
got to the point where they had six or seven professors each
semester doing COIL. And that then turned into a face-to-face
student exchange."
"Because of the connection through COIL, it grew into
something institutional. It allowed [Ulster and ULSA Noroeste] to
achieve an internationalization goal that they otherwise wouldn't
have been able to."
COIL allows institutions to more broadly implement a partnership across different disciplines.
"Oftentimes, you have a partnership for study abroad or
research, but they're fairly limited in the real scope of how deep
they penetrate the university," Forward says. "COIL really lets
universities utilize their partnerships across many disciplines by

In efforts to diversify its international relationships, SUNY
has promoted its research at bilateral research conferences,
built faculty exchange into their programming, and developed
robust study abroad programs for U.S. students to go to Turkey-
although many of those programs have recently been put on hold
due to a U.S. Department of State travel warning.
Additionally, SUNY has used technology to add new dimensions to its partnerships through its collaborative online international learning (COIL) activities. The SUNY COIL Center
uses technology ranging from Skype and Google Docs to
video-conferencing platforms in order to link classrooms around
the world through collaborative projects codeveloped by two
faculty members.
"We have used COIL to support the dual-diploma campuses to
get them engaged with one another in additional ways, or in ways
that enhance what they are already doing," Crimmins says.

Stony Brook University's partnerships
have contributed to a recruitment
pipeline for international graduate
student enrollment.

combining classes and also exposing that partnership to more
faculty members and students than is typical in an institutional
cooperative agreement."
Dan Nolan, assistant professor of German studies and COIL
faculty fellow at the University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD), says
that small-scale collaboration through COIL "offers a granular
partnership development opportunity. It allows the university to get
to know interested partners and to flesh out whether or not those
partnerships are going to last and bring value over the long-term."
Like the SUNY and UMD COIL programs, the University of
Arizona has expanded its global reach by pursuing collaborations
with international partners and taking advantage of opportunities
made available through new technology.
"We are rethinking the paradigm of global engagement in order
to reach a wider audience and provide opportunities of interest to
current students and scholars," UA's LaFleur says.
He says that virtual exchanges work especially well with
partner institutions where faculty have strong academic connections and are familiar with each other's coursework and degree
programs. UA recently partnered with the American University
in Cairo (AUC) on the Harnessing Innovation through Virtual
Exchange (HIVE) program.
As part of the HIVE program, U.S. and Egyptian students
at UA and AUC, respectively, participate in virtual exchanges
through a course titled "Energy Efficiency Rating and Design for a
Commercial Building."
"This project demonstrates how two university curricula from
two continents collaborate on the learning of how to examine a
commercial building by evaluating its energy efficiency compliance with international codes and enhance its efficiency through
