*inno-talk* LEARNING + WORKING + SHARING By Pornthep Chatpinyakoop, CODE 2010.11.1.


CODE (Collaborative Development Unit, KMUTT city center, Thailand) is basically design collaborative unit established to enhance design learning with local entrepreneurs in efforts that covers, intersects and cross-over the design-related areas of research, strategy, branding, product and so on. Collaborative projects among multi-disciplinary teams members comprising of design professionals, academists and students and specialists, attempted to apply human-centered design approach in search for appropriate solutions for Thai product design industries from both private and public sectors.

Using design as a process to enable collaborative activity and learning, professor Pornthep Chatpinyakoop, director of CODE, proposes project-based learning with the new approach that is not limited to the conventional classroom learning environment, formal learning method, age, time, location, and methodology. Along with the delivery of design-related outcomes, ranging from consumers products such as electrical appliances, the factory assembly line to social design, CODE aims to create a broad range of knowledge sharing opportunities for all the participants in a project. The role of CODE is to identify, initiate and manage projects, and to provide a supportive framework within which participants will be able to make sense of their learning and put it to work to meet their own goals and aspirations.
