This paper reports on the early stages of a long-term effort to develop an efficient methodology for managing an international design workshop, using English as the medium of communication. With the aim of fostering design students who are better able to compete in the global workforce, an international design workshop was established between a Japanese and a Turkish university. Subsequently, data was gathered based on the results of student questionnaires, personal interviews, and teacher observations. The results indicate that although it required careful planning and coordination, the workshop was beneficial for students in many ways. This report also discusses ideas for how future workshops of this kind might be improved.
