The briefing session on GSP393: International Migration, Transnational Family, and Community Building: Comparative Perspectives, was held on July 10th (Thu).
This intensive short-period PBL course, which lasted six weeks, had its initial start at the UC Berkeley on June 2nd (Mon) for the three-week-long U.S. session and then switched its location to Japan for another three-week session. Throughout the course, the participating students studied immigration-related issues from various perspectives, including global immigration issues, the current state of immigrant families and how it should ideally be, construction of regional societies that accommodate those families, etc.
The students presented their findings to the audience at the Lecture Hall of AIU, in groups each consisting of two or three students. More than 100 students, faculty members and staff attended the event, who also actively exchanged their thoughts and ideas following the presentations.
