SUNY COIL Center - Collaborative Online International Learning
SUNY’s Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) program has published an article about SUNY COIL’s Spring 2020 Global Guests program. The idea was an outgrowth of SUNY Broome’s beloved Teaching Squares program, and was spearheaded by Kathleen McKenna and Stephanie Malmberg, together with Hope Windle of SUNY COIL and Christina Lee of SUNY Monroe.

We worked with colleagues within SUNY and around the world. 67 teachers from 8 countries participated visited one another’s classes virtually. We also met to support one another and to talk about what works well and what could be improved in pandemic-era teaching.

Broome teachers participating included Katherine Bacon, Lynda Carroll, Peg Reitz, and Sara Rose.

To see uplifting brief “post it” note reflections on the experience and on teaching from Global Guests participants visit Global Guests Group Share.

To read SUNY’s entire article, coauthored by faculty from Australia, Chile, Mexico, and the US visit SUNY COIL News & Events.

Would you like to reinvigorate your teaching and your classroom as a Global Guest in Spring 2022? Reach out to Kathleen McKenna at Join us! You’ll be reminded why you chose to teach and you’ll become part of a supportive global community of college teachers.
