Collaborative online international learning (COIL) in UK higher education: Reloaded

Sathees Kunjuthamby, Matthew Bennett, Xue Zhou

Research output: Other contributionpeer-review


The concept of ‘collaborative online international learning’ (COIL) has been conceived as an educational approach that provides students from different geographical and linguacultural backgrounds opportunities to attain cross-cultural competence and intercultural awareness without leaving their home campus (Guth & Rubin, 2015). In this blog we recommend that business simulation and virtual trips become part of the wider COIL project, which will reap learning benefits for students on business courses. COIL projects enable many students to have international encounters virtually on a given, course-related ‘project’; our recommendation is designed to help nurture a globalised everyday working life.
