The presentation is mainly based on the COIL course on “Intercultural communication” which has been offered at SUNY Oswego (Amy McHugh) and Antwerp University (Charlotte De Backer) since 2013. The focus is on practical issues, such as planning, interaction, group size, assignments, deadlines and assessment methods. It also discusses recent research on the added value of COILing with regard to student competences.
