At the end of this course, students will be able to;
- Define the role of design at different levels behavior change.
- Classify the factors (individual, social, environmental etc) that affect the behavior change.
- Analyze opportunities and potential areas for influencing behavior through design.
- Design a framework/model to design interventions for behavior change
- Design interventions by evaluating the models and frameworks of behavior change.
- Evaluate the design decisions for changing behavior through design by analyzing and reflecting on those decisions
In this multi-disciplinary course, students (from Industrial Design Engineering, Communication Science, Interaction Technology and other relevant programmes) work together on a challenge in the domain of behaviour change. In doing so, this course reflects the notion that current societal challenges are complex and require input from multiple disciplines. Based on this reflection and spanning the faculties of ET, BMS and EWI, this course aligns with our university’s “people first” mission statement. Throughout the course, topics and theoretical frameworks related to Design for Behaviour Change are practiced in various lectures and online discussion sessions. At the end, student groups are expected to write a scientific paper and complete a design assignment.|
