Details In this research, the authors discuss how to design a short-term oversea study aboard program under collaboration with a Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteer. The authors research on a case study conducted by Kansai University in Senegal on February 2014. The two undergraduate students dispatched to Senegal for working with a JOCV who engages in a medical clinic as an audiovisual expert. In order to design a reciprocal practice for both students and JOCV, the authors clarified the two aspects: one is what the students learned in the collaborative practice, and another is what the JOCV benefits from the practice. The authors analyzed data collected through interview and participatory observation based on action research and suggested how to design a reciprocal practice for both the students and JOCV in the collaborative practice.
