Designing for Behaviour & Impact

Learn how to incorporate an understanding of people’s behaviors into the design process and create solutions that have a measurable impact.

Workshop Dates: July 23–27, 2018

Also at CIID Summer School Kochi, India!

Keywords: Human-centered design, behavioral science, behavioral economics, biases, impact

The Design for Behavior & Impact workshop will follow CIID’s “learning by doing” philosophy and “people-centered” approach to introduce students to behavioral science through the lens of interaction design. The workshop will investigate how a behavioral research and design process can help interaction designers gain a better understanding of people’s decision-making processes and create products and services with higher rates of adoption and usage.

Learning expectations:
Participants will:

  • Gain an improved understanding of how behavioral biases affect the decision-making process of the people you are designing for.
  • Learn methods to apply behavioral science to your design process so that your products and services result in better outcomes for your business and your customers.
  • Learn methods to help you measure the behavioral outcomes of your design choices and the impact of your choices on the people you are designing for.
