Tangling With Spaghetti: Pedagogical Lessons From Games

CAROLINE VERZAT, JANICE BYRNE, ALAIN FAYOLLE
2009 Academy of Management Learning & Education  
Student teams compete to build weight resistant structures using only spaghetti sticks and sewing thread. Their written feedback forms the primary qualitative data for this study.  ...  However, the creation of "bilingual" graduates who have dual technical and managerial competencies is thwarted by students' inferior teamwork and interpersonal skills.  ...  The use of LEGO was found appealing to the students and provided an excellent medium for teaching design, programming skills, and creativity (Wang, 2001) .  ...
