The SUNY Collaborative Online International Learning Center (COIL) has received a SUNY Innovative Instructional Technology Grant (IITG). This grant has been used to enhance the SUNY Online Course Quality Rubric (OSCQR) with COIL-specific best practices, and to develop COIL+OSCQR standards for the COIL community to use that aligns OSCQR and COIL standards and practices for online international virtual teaching and learning experiences. 

Expertly designed by a team of instructional designers and researchers, the COIL+OSCQR standards are intended to guide the design, review, and refresh of COIL course projects. The COIL+OSCQR standards and process provide a systematic and consistent approach to accommodate the complexity of Virtual Exchange methodologies, varying degrees of commitment, and differing levels of assessment. The COIL+OSCQR standards are designed to help COIL coordinators and practitioners implement international collaborations that are learner-centered and informed by research. 

Collaborators on this project include instructional designers,COIL coordinators from:

with support from the SUNY COIL Center, Hope Windle, and SUNY Online, Alejandra M. Pickett.
