The Faculty of Engineering at Niigata University conducts the student exchange program called “G-DORM” in Engineering Education and the first author experienced two G-DORM programs. One is travel-type field group work (GW) program participants travel overseas and conduct field surveys with local students. The other is online international GW program participants conduct group discussions with foreigners without overseas travel. This study conducted an analysis to find the lessons and problems of the two programs that the first author had experienced. The results of the analysis indicated that online international GW could not be carried out instead of travel-type field GW. Also, from the results, this study proposed the effective utilization method of online international GW integrated with travel-type field GW.
