Behavior Design for Sustainable Development

This course will provide an introduction to the theory and practice of applying behavioral science insights to create effective public policy solutions. Behavior Design refers to the science and process of encouraging human behavior by design and is a burgeoning field with powerful implications for facilitating change at various scales. Students will learn about some of the behavioral science tools available and have the opportunity to apply their knowledge through designing, implementing and evaluating a behavioral trial in teams.

The first weekend will focus on an introduction to behavioral science insights and include an in-class design workshop facilitated by the instructor. Between the first and second weekend, students will conduct behavior trials within the campus community. Students will present their findings during the second weekend, receive constructive feedback, and continue studying examples of applied psychology related to their areas of interest. This class is open to students interested in development, sustainability, health, and human behavior in general.
