With the aim of promoting global education, our fourth-year students visit Asian countries on an overseas study trip each year. Students from the Department of Electronics and Information Engineering visited Taiwan for five consecutive years from 2014 to 2018. They visited National Taipei University of Technology twice and National Chiayi University thrice. This paper revisits the content of the five years of our work towards encouraging international student interaction. Collaborative experiments can bring about some degree of student interaction, but introverted students still have difficulty in interacting. In 2018, students from Japan and Taiwan joined together to solve physical dynamics exercises. They had icebreakers such as introducing themselves and being seated next to each other to solve the problems. Almost all the Japanese students said that they were able to interact with Taiwanese students. We demonstrate the promotion of international exchange through teaching materials of international joint education.
