The two projects discussed utilize Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) to engage undergraduate learners across three continents. COIL methodologies are integrated into classes to decenter students’ perspectives on their discipline and augment intercultural awareness. COIL methodologies integrate a capacity for articulating an understanding of global systems relevant to students’ field of study. Partners from the US, the UK, Uganda, and Nigeria implemented COIL projects to address the need for advanced intercultural awareness. In the following report, collaborators identify their design process, technology choices, student reporting related to outcomes, assessment strategies, and recommendations for successful future COIL projects.
