The overall objective of the UCOILD project is to meet the need for strong intercultural and digital competences within Early childhood and Care professions by developing an innovative didactical COIL (Collaboration Online International Learning) toolkit for lectures.  The toolkit will help lectures to realize and facilitate COIL projects in ways that are student-centred, experiential, inclusive and reflective, thereby providing the best possible virtual learning environment for supporting intercultural and digital competence.
