A message from NC International’s Global Engagement division:

Niagara College employees are invited to attend NC International’s Global Learning Lounge on Thursday, June 16 at 1:30 p.m. via Zoom to learn about Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL). COIL is an opportunity that provides both NC students and students from around the world with an international learning experience.

In this 50-minute session, you will learn more about the framework of COIL as your facilitators, Holly Catalfamo, Director, Global Engagement, and Maxine Semple, Manager, Cultural & Global Engagement, share a case study experience of a three-week binational learning series involving students from Niagara College, Canada and Cork, Ireland.

At the completion of this session, you will explore opportunities for internationalization through technology by embracing the virtual classroom platform with students from different educational institutions located in various countries. Participants will gain insight into the benefits of developing cross-cultural competencies in students by creating an opportunity for shared learning experiences with student peers from other countries.

Please note: Registration is not required. NC employees can join the session using the Zoom link posted to the employee portal on June 7.

The monthly Global Learning Lounge will not take place in July or August. Stay tuned for more information about the fall 2022 workshops.
