Register Today!


The UNC Chapel Hill School of Nursing has integrated Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) into numerous healthcare courses and nursing faculty have developed tools and methods to measure success of COIL initiatives.

This intensive three day workshop will provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) principles, practical skills in COIL design and facilitation, and strategies for assessment and scholarly engagement. Through interactive sessions and hands-on activities, participants will be prepared to integrate COIL effectively into their healthcare education programs.

Our speakers have the experience to train others on choosing partner institutions, creating innovative learning environments, and evaluating learning outcomes when integrating COIL into their curriculum.

Academic nurse educators and staff, healthcare educators, administrators, nursing students are encouraged to attend.
