In your COIL project, you will engage with students who come from different educational systems. This means that you may have different methods of working collaboratively, different expectations and definitions of success, different attitudes, and different approaches to project management.
It is important that you get your group organized prior to taking on your project. This involves identifying common goals, developing common definitions, and setting roles and responsibilities to manage your time. Like any other course, there are deadlines that you must meet in your COIL project. You will need to organize your tasks around these deadlines.
