Students presented the results that they obtained through their study in the fall semester to local residents. Survey themes of the three student groups included "how to improve name recognition of Makomodake," "issues and solutions of Makomodake production," and "how to improve connections among residents in the Kayagasawa region." Suggestions by the three groups had the following in common: cooperation between AIU and the community should be more diversified and deepened. The students utilized data obtained through fieldwork for their presentations, and the solutions they proposed were concrete and diverse.
Some of the comments from the local residents who participated in the session were as follows: "It is amazing that the students conducted studies and made such concrete proposals in such a short time"; "Is it possible to carry out the proposals? If so, how?"; "The students gave serious consideration to our community, which lead to great contribution to the community." Finally, on the basis of the contents of the learning and the proposals by the students, the local residents and the teaching staff agreed that PBL courses would continue in the Kayagasawa region for the next fiscal year.
