Keywords:collaborative online international learning, SDGs, multicultural, multi-disciplinary

Niigata University had conducted a lecture course with multicultural and multi-disciplinary team-based learning focusing on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Society 5.0; however, the lecture course became impossible to implement due to the outbreaking of COVID-19. Therefore, Niigata University developed a 3-day collaborative online international learning (COIL) program with the subject of “Sci-tech Challenges for SDGs in Post-COVID-19” based on the knowledge gained from past practices of the lecture course. This study argues the achievement of the 3-day COIL carried out by Niigata University with Royal University of Phnom Penh in 2020. The impact of the 3-day COIL for students was positive and was emerged as the increase of the knowledge on SDGs, the understanding of the necessity for improving English skills, or the increase of teamwork skills. Also, the 3-day COIL, highly evaluated by participants, resulted in the increase of many student’s motivation towards overseas. On the other hand, improving the tight schedule of the 3-day COIL was pointed out as a future challenge.
