Virtual Exchange and COIL

Teaching Innovation Network

The Teaching Innovation Network on Virtual Exchange and COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) was created in the academic year 2020-2021 as a result of the growing interest in virtual exchanges and the opportunities they open, for students and teachers alike, for online international collaboration.

This network was also created in response to the promotion of internationalisation at home, at the University of Girona, through the #UdG Global internationalization strategy approved by the Governing Council at the beginning of 2020.

Its members are teaching staff who have already carried out virtual exchange activities, or who are in the process of designing and creating collaborative online learning activities. There are members from all faculties and also from the Modern Language Service.
