Course Description
The new discipline of Behavioural Insights (BI) uses principles from the Behavioural and Decision Sciences (including psychology and economics) to help people make decisions that promote health, wellness, and happiness. By accounting for the ways that people make decisions and behave in the real world, BI improves programs, policies, and products in ways that encourage positive changes in consumers, citizens, and employees. This module provides an overview of Behavioural Insights (including research design and ethics) within the wider innovation space and across sectors.
