Socially Innovative Global Classroom (SIGLOC)  in AY 2021


To all university students around the world

<Socially Innovative Global Classroom (SIGLOC)  in 2021>
Program Outline
As a school selected for the FY2018 Inter-University Exchange Project of Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan, Osaka City University is implementing a Program to Develop Collaborative Social Innovators that uses Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL). The university has implemented an entirely online-version of the program, entitled Socially Innovative Global Classroom: Online (SIGLOC-online) since March 2020. We are recruiting students to participate in this program.


Purpose of the SIGLOC Program
The purpose of this program is to cultivate social innovators. Social innovation refers to solving social problems through new products, services and systems. By collaborating with students from other countries, the program will cultivate the ability to “discover issues” and the ability to “find solutions”, and train people who possess the ability to “implement those solutions”. This program aims to yield people who are self-motivated, creative problem- solvers that find solutions to issues that involve, but are not limited to, the government, NPOs or corporations in the future.
