Office of Global Initiatives and Center for Teaching and Learning are launching COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) Program

On October 12th, 2017 the Office of Global Initiatives and Center for Teaching and Learning launched COIL Faculty Fellows Program, an initiative designed to broaden academic, cultural and interpersonal interactions between Baruch College and partner institutions around the globe mainly through online platforms. The event presented a unique opportunity to raise awareness about COIL project among faculty at Baruch.

Vice Provost for Global Initiatives & Professor of Marketing Myung-Soo Lee officially launched the event. In his opening remarks, VP Lee pledged to provide support in the development of COIL-type courses. Then, Professor Anna Boozer made a short presentation on the main points of the new program and why faculty participation is essential. The COIL Faculty Fellows program will provide an option for faculty who want to add a global dimension to a current course or build a new one based on global engagement.

COIL Faculty Fellows Program at Baruch College is especially crucial as a supportive endeavor to the Strategic Plan 2013-2018 goals to “Deepen Engagement with the World Outside the Campus.” Additionally, COIL will allow “globalization at home,” which presents students with an opportunity to communicate and collaborate with their peers in foreign countries without leaving New York City. The Director of Center for Teaching and Learning, Allison Lehr Samuels, concluded the event by offering support from the center.

Faculty members who are interested in applying must submit their applications by November 17th, 2017.
