The SUNY COIL Center's annual conference is the leading international event in the field and brings together 350+ professors, international programs staff, instructional technologists, and university and college administrators from SUNY, across the U.S. and around the world to share innovative models and best practices. The year's conference agenda will include sessions from both invited speakers as well as those resulting from our international Call for Presentations. We greatly appreciate sponsorship from the City University of New York (CUNY) in providing facilities at their Graduate Center for SUNY's 10th anniversary COIL Conference thus allowing us to expand the number of attendees at this usually sold out event.

For a decade the SUNY COIL Center has been reimagining education as a globally networked phenomenon. Collaborative Online International Learning* links faculty across borders to co-create learning environments in which students gain valuable digital and cross-cultural competencies through collaboration with international peers. We have in parallel expanded the landscape of higher education institutions at SUNY, across the US and the world who are internationalizing their curricula by implementing the COIL model to benefit their students, as well as their faculty and staff.

Our own networks have grown from a handful of loosely participating campuses in 2006 to over 50 committed member institutions working to normalize this model. At this, our tenth anniversary conference, we gather together to reflect on the evolution of the field, to celebrate accomplishments, to welcome new practitioners to our networks, and to investigate what new directions the next ten years may bring.

*COIL is used to refer to pedagogical activities using technology to link classrooms and students in geographically distant locations through coursework. Other terms describing such activities are virtual exchange, virtual mobility, globally networked learning, telecollaboration, and online intercultural exchange.
