The COIL Bridge Construction Project

Yesterday before the opening reception I bumped into Jon Rubin from New York(he is actually in the blogger team!!!) who told me about the SUNY (State University of New York) Center for Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) and the projects he is running there.

In his workshop here at the EDEN conference he will present the recent COIL Center initiative where they link students at SUNY with peers abroad through team-taught online courses which foreground the cross-cultural perspectives of the collaborating participant students. He showed me some video footage from one of the collaborative projects.

Have a look here ...

and here for the cross culutral video
