Table of Etiquette's and Knowledge


            The Character Building Society has launched a ‘pilot’ productivity enhancing project for the common spaces at GIK Institute known as ‘Table of Etiquettes and Knowledge’. The project is based on transforming the mess table by enhancing its functionality via graphics. Under this ptoject each table cloth is replaced with a graphically designed theme covering tableware placement and information for different niches. The themes currently used in the pilot include physics, math, facts and figures and motivation. Table of etiquettes is an attempt to revolutionalize the plain mess table cloth and has innovated a new method of transferring knowledge and habits passively. The double edged approach is to promote eating manners while utilizing empty spaces to promote passive learning on different topics. ‘Some of the most useful people I've met in my 4 years were while dining at the mess. In the long run, I believe at full functionality the project will help connect people with similar interests together.’ said President of CBS, Rayyan Zahid, ‘I envision all the designers of GIK to come together to design at least one well researched table on a specific topic in their own style. They would of course get credit for it, and this can become a part of their legacy. However it is very important to maintain the quality in this process as well’. Students willing to take part in this project can contact CBS. A prototype version has been set up in the central mess and will be expanding to the girls mess as well. If you have used the table then please send your feedback on cbs.gik@gmail.com ...
