Mimi Harvey Receives Global Engagement Mini-Grant

coil.jpgDr. Mimi Harvey, Communication Studies faculty member, recently traveled to Seoul, South Korea to meet with Dr. Lee Hunyul, Korea University faculty, through the help of an International Education Global Engagement Mini-grant. The purpose of this meeting was to begin development of a joint Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) project. COIL is a model for teaching and learning that promotes the development of intercultural competence (the ability to communicate effectively and appropriately with people from other cultures) through a shared online multicultural learning environment.

During the recent visit, Dr. Lee and Dr. Harvey began the process of developing a joint project that will meet the COIL objectives: exposure to different cultures leading to increased global awareness; a better understanding of the one’s identity; and more experience and greater comfort levels with the tools and processes involved in collaborating with remote partners. They hope to pilot the project in Spring Quarter, 2018. Although Dr. Harvey is presently on sabbatical, you may contact her at mharvey@shoreline.edu if you are interested in learning more about COIL projects.
