62 Minutes

Our lives are peppered with little nudges to influence our behavior. Timed discounts temp us to buy now. Charts from our home energy provider try to compel us to be more like our most energy efficient neighbors. Counters show our progress toward daily step goals. These types of behavioral nudges have been used to support social policy, and in this webinar, we’ll explore how to nudge students to be more engaged and productive learners. We’ll play with examples of nudges to establish academic identities, reinforce norms for learning behaviors, motivate student engagement, and more. Be ready to experiment!
