Masterclass in Nudging

3-day course in Copenhagen, Denmark

A one-of-a-kind course for professionals with a sound knowledge of the theories underpinning nudging, and a desire to learn how to work structured with the practical application of behavioural science.

Nudging is a concept in behavioural science and is an effective way to influence people’s behaviour, without restricting freedom of choice. The application of nudging in the world is increasing steadily, both within the private and public sector – this in spite of a heavy lack of publications on the practical application of behavioural insights.

While you will get a comprehensive understanding of the theories underpinning nudging and behavioural science, the main objective of this masterclass is to learn how to facilitate the practical application of behavioural insights – In other words, how to apply nudging in practice.

To realize this objective, you will get a thorough presentation of iNudgeyou’s own framework BASIC© – a diagnostic approach to the development of effective behaviour interventions. BASIC© is distinguished from other frameworks of the sort, on two essential features:

  • It encompasses the whole process involved in a behavioural insights project, from the beginning to end.
  • It is diagnostic in the sense that it facilitates the differentiation and analysis of behavioural challenges as well as the identification of appropriate nudge-solutions.

BASIC© is a product of our sustained devotion to applied behavioural science, and is as such a pragmatic framework that allows you to more effectively detect and understand problematic behaviour, develop appropriate nudge-solutions and finally, implement and test the efficiency of your interventions.

It is important to emphasize that this is not so much a creative process as it is a scientific and systematic one.

Before the masterclass
One week before the course starts, you will receive preparatory course material. This to secure the best starting point for learning the practical application of behavioural science
The theory of nudging
Nudging is the systematic and evidence-based development and implementation of nudges in creating behaviour change. In particular, nudging relies heavily on theories and methodology from behavioural economics as well as cognitive and social psychology, using microeconomic decision theory as a baseline.

The first part of the masterclass will give you a thorough introduction to the most up-to-date theories and methodologies as well as the complete answers on what nudging is and what it can be used for.

BASIC©
The main objective of this masterclass is to equip you with a framework and the tools necessary to apply behavioural science and create solid and measurable behaviour changes.

To achieve this, you will get knowledge and hands-on experience of BASIC© – a diagnostic approach to the development of effective behaviour interventions.

The approach is a result of the almost 10 years of work with behavioural insights carried out at iNudgeyou.

BASIC© is a systematic approach which provide prospective behavioural insights-specialists with a detailed framework for developing behaviour change interventions. It does this by presenting tools for:

  • identifying and conceptualising relevant behavioural challenges,
  • analysing the behavioural challenge targeted,
  • identifying the relevant behavioural insights to apply as potential solutions,
  • field-testing solutions through intervention, based on proper experimental design, and finally
  • Implementing effective solutions as through a structured phase called continuation.

In other words, BASIC© contains all fundamental phases when working with behaviour change through nudging and applied behavioural science.

The insights acquired in this part of the masterclass will strengthen your understanding of the practical application of behavioural science, and equip you to facilitate structured behaviour change – not only in theory but also in practice.

A diagnostic approach
Just as a doctor doesn’t prescribe medicine without examining the patient, it wouldn’t make a lot of sense to develop nudges, before the behaviour challenge is properly diagnosed – no treatment without a diagnosis.

A central feature of BASIC© is its diagnostic property where behavioural problems are divided into four categories:

  • Attention
  • Belief formation
  • Choice
  • Determination

This typology is based on the ever-growing pool of behavioural insights and is a tool with a dual purpose, as it is both used for explaining problematic behaviour and by extension hereof devising proper solutions.

This diagnostic tool is as such systematically relating the analysis of behaviour to the identification of what behavioural insights to apply as potential solutions.

At the masterclass, you will get a thorough understanding of the diagnostic approach. This will give you a structured way to understand problematic behaviour and create effective solutions.

The ethics of nudging
One of the most common worries from academia and the public sphere regarding the science of nudging, is that the approach will be used by potentially biased policy makers, employers or other people of power, to manipulate citizens, employees or consumers against their own will.

During the course, you will be introduced to a conceptual framework for describing the character of four broad types of nudges. This framework serves as a basis for distinguishing the manipulative use of nudges from other kinds of uses.

this part of the masterclass will give you the tools and know-how to assess the soundness of behavioural interventions.
