As ACE and Japanese Education Ministry (MEXT or Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) have announced a new COIL initiative to expand Japan-USA higher education ties starting 2017, a great amount of interests in Japan is emerging to learn from those who have been pioneering the initiative. The workshop (the action lab) would like to take this opportunity to promote such an enthusiasm with the COIL practitioners in the US. The workshop also aims to provide a chance for the US (or other overseas) practitioners to understand further how it is like to develop a COIL course with Japan
