Event description


Masterclass on behavioural change methods

This course takes a design lab approach. We expect you to come prepared with a well-defined policy or service-delivery challenge that you are currently facing, so that we can apply behavioural insights methodology to work through your problem, with the support of our facilitators.

Participation in this course is done in pairs. It is compulsory to register for this course with a colleague with whom you can immediately workshop your identified challenge.

It is essential that one person from each pair has previously attended one of the introductory courses (specific details of eligible courses are below).

Course content:

This masterclass will recap the behaviour change process and provide participants with an opportunity to deeply explore their problem, to work through their problem, and develop a plan to trial and solve the problem.

Course requirements:

1) Bring a ‘live’ project you are working on in your Department to work through and solve

2) Bring a colleague who is also involved in the project to work through the problem

3) Be prepared for self-directed work

This course will focus on applying behaviour change methods to your policy or service challenge through group work and one-on-one assistance from course facilitators.

This course will provide:

- a recap of methods for designing better behaviour change programs;

- an overview of identifying, defining and prioritising target behaviours;

- opportunity to develop a behavioural diagnosis plan that matches audience insights to policy and intervention tools;

- skills to test and trial your plan.
