At the end of the course, students will be able to:
- Apply the knowledge provided in the literature, before, during and after the (guest-) lectures, in order to legitimize your choices in a self-designed change intervention.
- Receive feedback in a constructive way and adapt your change intervention technique, based on video-based expert advice and feedback on a rehearsal round so that your change intervention becomes more effective.
- Give a group presentation (being your change intervention) to a particular audience in order to persuade this target group to change their individual behaviours with as a result a measurable positive change in their intention to change their behaviour.
- Reflect on the effectiveness of your change intervention and pinpoint what went well and what you would do differently next time, based on your own psychological Insights Discovery profile and your target group’s responses.
The second Processes of Change course deals with change processes at the individual level. During this course we will approach change from a psychological angle. Think of questions like:How can individuals change their (patterns of) behaviour(s)?How do you design a change intervention?How can you influence people to show behaviour that is not their initial preference? How can you take your role as a change leader? What are your strengths and how can you use them to the fullest extend? You will use your newly acquired theoretical and applied knowledge from guest lecturers to design and conduct a change intervention.The aimof the change intervention is to change the behaviour of a target audience. In the preparation of thechange intervention you ask forhelp of an expert of yourchoosing, and a professional presentation coach will provide you with feedbackon your presentation skills.By designing and executing the changeintervention,you will need to immediately apply what you have learned; successfully triggering individual changeof othersand in yourself.
