Peer review:

The content of this publication and articles use a language that is clear and understandable, not only for specific scientific or artistic circles, but also for a wider audience. The Collective Design Method, in addition to didactic values, includes others that the authors do not talk about openly and these values are difficult to overestimate. It shows the great value of respect for other people, their culture and different traditions, along with technological innovation, all working synergistically to create better, lower cost and more environmentally friendly products.

This publication describes the work of research and analysis for teaching-learning methodologies in the context of training designers and artists for future international careers. It is a complete and detailed work where the different dimensions, from creativity to critical thinking, are explored and experimented within a series of workshops. From this, there was an investment in articles resulting from this reflection; namely, there was a refinement in the evaluation indicators and conclusions, making their contribution justified and relevant for higher education.
