● Program Outline
As a school selected for the FY2018 Inter-University Exchange Project of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan, Osaka City University (OCU) is implementing a Program to Develop Collaborative Social Innovators that uses Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL).

.

OCU has implemented an entirely online-version of the program, entitled Socially Innovative Global Classroom: Online (SIGLOC-online) since March 2020.

.

● 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”.
