Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) project – Europe through the global lens

Dagmar Johnson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

With a challenging and continuously changing learning and teaching landscape, this project was developed to provide learners with an experience that is influenced by different cultures (de Wit 2002). Coventry University actively supports the internationalisation agenda, aiming to educate global graduates and provide them with a head start that will enable them to compete in the global job market. Students studying in the UK get a very UK-centric view on current issues about the European Union (EU). However, the EU is one of the largest economies in the world and therefore students need to be aware of those issues from a global perspective.
As a result, the idea for this particular Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) project was born. The Module Leader for the “Europe through the Global Lens” module works closely with five partner institutions across
Europe that all have students from all over the world. All institutions teach their students about European Business and face the exact same problem: a very national (whether Danish, Spanish, Belgian, French or German-centric) view
on current issues about the EU.
