Event description

Description

Course content:
This interactive workshop will explore the application of behavioural insights (BI) to Victorian public policy issues. Participants will learn to identify projects that will benefit from the application of BI, and be given practical tools they can incorporate to improve policy and program outcomes.

Participants in this course will:

  • Gain an increased understanding of human behaviour and its drivers
  • Obtain new skills and tools to apply a systems approach to explore policy or service challenges
  • Learn, and practice, a behaviourally-focused method for identifying, defining and prioritising target audiences and key behaviours to address policy challenges.

Who is this course for?
This workshop is suitable for all members of the VPS (recommended for VPS4-6).

Course facilitator

Sarah Kneebone is a Research Fellow with BehaviourWorks Australia and currently finalising her PhD thesis ‘Catalysing water saving behaviours in Australian urban households’. Sarah’s thesis focuses on behaviour identification and prioritisation to assist in water demand management for households. Her research contributes to the innovative international, multidisciplinary CRC for Water Sensitive Cities program. She is particularly interested in catalytic or ‘spillover’ behaviour adoption pathways, perceptions of behaviour similarity and assessing the effort involved in behaviour adoption as part of behaviour diagnosis.
