Treść głównego artykułu


This article presents the case study of collaboration in the teaching-learning process between the Business Schools of Mexican and American universities using the COIL methodology. Despite the great versatility of the COIL methodology, the literature on the subject is focused on so-called On Line COIL, which involves students from institutions located in different countries in a project developed asynchronously, using various means of electronic communication. There is almost no information of other forms of its implementation. Considering this absence, a different form of COIL called IN Person COIL that combined online collaboration with elements of face-to-face collaboration is described in the first case, meanwhile in the second case the traditional On Line COIL is presented. The results of the applied methodology and recommendations for instructors for those who would like to incorporate it into their didactic process are presented.
