Dr. Calderwood describes the Generative Item workshop as an opportunity to begin teamwork by thinking about and then discussing the big questions and humanitarian issues through the stimulus of a generative object. The goals of this activity are to build "community within and across teams" and "to begin the conversation about enduring questions".

The groups are asked to look at each generative item together and to discuss the (1) items background and context; (2) the relation to humanitarianism; and (3) the relation to "big questions."
