Program Details

COETAIL Philosophy

The COETAIL program is a set of 5 courses that build understanding on each other. It’s very important that participants commit to the full program. We do not allow participants to “jump in and out” of courses.

COETAIL is built on a cohort format taking advantage of the learning community that forms around ideas, learning, and projects. As a COETAILer you will belong to two communities to help support you in your learning. One being your cohort of learners and the other being the larger COETAIL community of over 100 international educators who are taking or have completed the program.

COETAIL believes in open sharing. Your reflections, assignments and projects will be open on the Internet and shared with other educators around the world. We learn through sharing and throughout the program we reflect on the idea of sharing openly on the Internet and how this is changing teaching and learning.

SUNY Paperwork

In order to receive the COETAIL Certificate you will need to apply to the Master’s Program at Buffalo State-SUNY. If you have taken course from Buffalo State-SUNY in the past you do not need to do this step.
