What is TP COIL

Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) is an innovative teaching method that facilitates intercultural competency, global awareness, and cross-lingual communication for students to prep are them for multicultural professional environments. The COIL program at TUFS connects accredited courses online and links classrooms with institutions of higher education in the United states.
The syllabi for the linked classes are co-created by the instructors across cultural and language divides. This allows students in Japan to experience United States classrooms online, and vice versa.
The online exchange of students and faculties with different languages, cultural backgrounds, and value systems, is realized using state-of-the-art teleconferencing technologies. Shared learning materials, that the classrooms work on separately and offline in Japan and the United States, makeup the foundation for the live discussions and learning between the students online. The development of intercultural competence occurs through the online facilitated and moderated discussions and exchanging of ideas.
COIL therefore develops, promotes, and nurtures multiculturalism which consequently leads to conflict-resilience.
