Abstract: Based on a COIL relationship between Prepa Tec de Monterrey and Know My World, this workshop introduces participants to a pilot program implemented during the Fall 2014 semester. This innovative merger between a preparatory university system and a global education organization developed a comprehensive model to integrate academic, social, emotional and cultural literacy within COIL experiences. Participants will understand and demonstrate how the "Connected Multicultural Learning" pilot program supports teachers and students in developing intercultural competence.
