2) To understand engineering design process such as needs assessment, concept idea making, prototype making, and try and error.
3) To develop “applying gamification idea and its implementation plan” for both Japan and Thailand to make contribution for SDGs
4) To build global awareness for successful utilization of technology in realizing SDGs
5) To understand different cultures and respect differences,
6) To be able to work in multicultural team and communicate effectively,
7) To think critically, and

Thailand, Chulalongkorn University, intercultural PBL, intercultural groupwork, global engineering, SDGs, engineering design, gamification

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

1) Choose SDGs targets for group work and decide group members.
2) Collect information on selected SDGs target and the status of its implementation in your country and share the information with other group members, and discuss features, similarities and differences among the countries in the implementation status of SDGs.
3) Determine a social issue related to your group’s selected SDGs target.
4) Collect relevant information and data for making “idea for achieving SDGs applying gamification and its implementation plan”, that reflects group members’ ideas and viewpoints in the individual countries.
5) Create and develop “Prototype” or “process idea”. (If you focus on Prototype idea, work on details. if you focus on Process idea, your prototype can be an initial sample)
