Faculty/Staff Meetings: COIL Awareness, Development, Implementation and Assessment
Conception and Initiation: Introduction to COIL
This meeting presents the concept of COIL to the Humber community. Topics include: definition; strategic alignment; forms (ex. applied international research; WIL; capstone project); learning outcomes; milestones, and key contacts / “next steps” to get started.
Definition and Planning: Getting Started – COIL Tools, Development & Integrating the HLOs
After receiving approval to run a COIL initiative, this meeting supports the faculty/staff leads with the tools, resources, and considerations they need to develop a successful COIL, and integrate the HLOs. The audience is both the Humber lead and the lead from the global partner.
Closure and Assessment: Reviewing COIL
This meeting is designed to debrief and document the lessons learned from the COIL experience; and encourage sharing of experience and best practices through different venues (ex. Humber’s Showcase, JIPE, conference presentations, etc.)
Student Workshops: Intercultural Awareness and Professional Development
Pre-COIL: Virtual Collaboration & Intercultural Awareness Training 1
In this workshop, participants will explore the relationship between their own culture, language and communication, and their personal identity. Participants will reflect upon the cultural diversity that exists in their daily interactions within local and global communities. Through this session, participants will learn how to build their intercultural capacity for working in diverse groups using virtual platforms.
Mid-COIL: Virtual Collaboration & Intercultural Awareness Training 2
Building on participants’ experiential learning, this session will dive deeper into intercultural fluency through looking at cross-cultural skills in action, in classrooms, the workplace, at- home and in the larger community. In this workshop, participants will openly reflect on their implicit bias and intercultural conflict management.
Post-COIL: Career & Professional Development
Facilitated in partnership with Humber’s Career Centre, the Career & Professional Development workshop utilizes the Humber Learning Outcomes (HLO) framework to help students identify and articulate their skill development over the course of their COIL experience.
There is a focus on reflection, resume building, interview skills and how to market experience to potential employers.
