In the wake of AIU being selected as one of the participants in the Re-Inventing Japan Project, we held an orientation session for the instructors so as to gauge their interest in the PBL courses that will be offered by the University and bring them on board.

During the orientation, Dr. Yoshitaka Kumagai, Dean of International Collaboration, gave a presentation on the characteristics and features of the courses. In addition, information was provided on the launch of FCA, which would serve as a forum for academic exchange among Japanese and U.S. instructors who are teaching PBL courses.
