It was 2016 when a cohort of my new students first participated in a summer programme at SIM. Participating in the programme for three summers in a row, I can now attest with more confidence that this is one of the greatest destinations for short-term study abroad programmes. My students really like the learning experience of lectures and activities on global competence. Many of them have shared with me that they never had lectures like this in Japan. For many Japanese college students, global competence is something they have “heard” but rarely “learned” in school. Therefore, it was indeed an eye-opening learning experience for them. One of my educational beliefs is that even short-term learning experience can broaden students’ worldview when it stimulates their interest in a meaningful way. The International Summer Programme at SIM provides exactly such a learning experience.
