About this workshop:
Learning design is often seen as showing people how to do the right things. Actually getting them to change their behaviour can be another challenge. It’s particularly challenging to get people to change those hard-to-control behaviours and habits that everyone struggles to avoid, despite the wealth of available information about better choices.
In this workshop, you will explore the research and science behind real behaviour change, including techniques from the fields of neuroscience, behavioral economics, behavioral psychology, persuasive technology, and habit formation. You will leave this workshop understanding the psychology, methods, and motivations of behaviour change that are becoming an increasingly necessary part of the learning designer’s toolbox.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to identify and understand the barriers to behaviour change
- Research-based methods to design solutions that not only inform learners but also inspire behaviour change
- How to use specific models and techniques for designing a change effort
- From practice designing a behaviour change strategy
