Look at What I Ate Contributed by: Ed RubeschLecturer, Thammasat Business School, Thammasat University, Thailand
Look What I Ate… This is a creativity exercise we ran recently at the International MBA Program at Thammasat University in Bangkok, Thailand
Look What I Ate… The title of the exercise is a play on the words create, innovate, motivate, and activate, implying both ideas and action. Students were asked to portray key milestones of their life on their shirts.
Look What I Ate… It was also used as a way to get people (who were all new entrants to the program) to get to know each other. The following day, students had to explain their shirts to each other.
Look What I Ate… To reinforce the eating and doing theme, students also cooked dinner that night…
Look What I Ate…The following slides were used during the exercise…Photos of some of the T-shirts follow.
Look What I Ate…We are what we eat…and this is not just food and nutrients. What we have learned What we have experienced What we have felt People we have met
