        Subject: Announcing the COIL Institute for Globally Networked Learning in the Humanities

The SUNY Center for Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL)
is pleased to announce a Call for Participation in the COIL Institute
for Globally Networked Learning in the Humanities funded by the National
Endowment for the Humanities.

Globally networked learning is not a technology, but is a new approach
to teaching and learning which provides faculty and students the ability
to communicate and collaborate directly and immediately with peers
internationally through the use of online communication tools. Our
Institute is open to scholars with no experience teaching online, but it
would not be appropriate for the truly technophobic.

The COIL approach to globally networked learning is to link a class at
an American university with one at a university abroad. The classes may
be totally online or offered in a blended format with face-to-face
sessions taking place at both schools, while collaborative work between
the groups takes place online. The courses are team-taught, with faculty
members working with peers at their partner institutions. Our method
promotes interactive shared coursework, emphasizing experiential
learning. We give collaborating students a chance to get to know each
other and help them develop meaningful projects together. This broadens
their view and understanding of the course content and builds their
cross-cultural communicative capacity by engaging the perspectives of
their global peers.

The COIL Center developed this two-year Institute to foster globally
networked learning environments within the Humanities. We are seeking
applications from institutional teams from across the U.S. that include:

    * At least one faculty member teaching courses within the following
disciplinary groups:

          o Freshman Foundations: introductory courses in all humanities
disciplines designed to internationalize the curriculum

          o Human Societies: Social Sciences and related disciplines

          o Media Arts & Cultures: Film and New Media Studies;
Musicology; Cultural Studies; and related disciplines

          o Language & Literature: Writing Studies; Rhetoric; Language
Instruction; Literature; and related disciplines

          o International Studies: History; Political Science;
International and Area Studies; and related disciplines

    * An Instructional Designer or Technologist; and/or

    * An International Programs Professional

Members of the teams accepted to the Institute will be appointed as COIL
Institute Fellows and will:

    * Be provided ongoing training and support to create globally
networked learning environments

    * Attend one of five discipline-focused three-day workshops at the
SUNY Global Center in NYC in September or October, 2011
