2022年度のGRIPプログラムは2023年1月から開始しました。オンラインの事前学習を終えた10人の千葉大生が2月にSIUを訪問し、約10日間Interprofessional Service Learning（ISL）の一環としてフィールドスタディを行いました。3月にはSIUからは10人の学生が千葉大学を訪問し、日本でのフィールドスタディを行ったあと、全員がメタバースでの成果発表を行いました。
While preparing for the presentation, there were many questions that came up, for which we didn’t have any answer. Working together for the presentations led us to think deeper, and prepare the presentation in a very efficient way. The final presentation was also the final official meeting of us with our buddies. It was good to see them again. Moreover it was our first time using oVice. oVice was a great application and its usage for the final presentation was very appropriate. It was fun.
So my overall opinion is the GRIP program was a fantastic program. I think it gave us an opportunity to go abroad, and it gave me an opportunity to reflect on many things like I had to learn values of socialization, time-based thinking, problem-solving, all these are very important in my career as well. I have no other suggestions like this. I just wish that this moment or this memory would last a bit longer. I think just the time, rest of everything was fine.
We are now getting more confident to present ourselves in front of others also, and we are like having that thing in our behavior to cooperate with others and the knowledge we have gained from there and the things we have observed, behavioral things we have observed from there, we are trying to implement it in our behavior like the calmness, discipline – all these things we have seen in the Japanese people. (Omission) We are growing, like we are growing not only from the knowledgeable perspective, but from the personality also we are growing after this program. We are more confident now for everything.
