Moreover, Prof. Dr. Jintavee is conducting research as an extension of nationally and internationally acclaimed innovation, focusing on empowerment and interorganizational collaboration to create innovations that can be commercialized.  

Prof. Dr. Jintavee’s research principles include 4 dimensions as follows:

1st dimension—Academic contribution:

Innovation and research must emphasize learning outcomes, both in professional skills, soft skills, and thinking skills by focusing on creating appropriate user experience and user interface design for contexts and users’ needs. The key is an integration of learning and teaching to induce best learning practices for learners.

2nd dimension—Co-creation:

It is important to collaborate with other areas, e.g., working with professors from the Faculty of Medicine to develop professional potential of medical students and digital observation through an application that can be used with microcontroller devices and robots.

3rd dimension—International collaboration:

Building international networks by collaborating with professors and researchers overseas can create an exchange of knowledge both on technology and learning management to prepare Thai people for global citizenship.

4th dimension—Scalability:

Collaborating with the private sector on research and innovation can boost the research towards enterprise-level adaptability and increase the efficiency of research and innovation tools.

Since 2007, Prof. Dr. Jintavee has produced continuous research, with a special focus on research that generates new knowledge and benefits the teaching of educational technology and communications at large, as well as can be expanded into practical educational technology and communication innovations.

Prof. Dr. Jintavee’s advice to younger researchers is “being a good researcher requires envisioning the research in the long term and seeing the big picture that shows where your expertise can encourage, support, and drive the development of society and the country. The 3Ps to adhere to are Purpose—the foundation of every success, Passion—happiness and benefit to both yourself and others, and Pertinacious—determination and perseverance to reach the goal that you’ve set.”
