About this webinar:
How can students be encouraged to engage and participate to successfully complete VET Courses? They may need a ‘nudge’!
Feedback from Velg Training webinar attendees identified that many trainers and assessors are looking for more PD in the area of ‘breaking through the barriers that students put up’. After surveying trainers and assessors from around the country, Tony Kirton has developed a brand-new webinar aimed at helping you with strategies to ‘break through’ some of the obstacles to progression, engagement and participation.
As trainers and assessors, we recognise students failing to complete or make on-time assessment submissions, attend classes, complete learning activities or engage with the course content. The result of these failures often leads to sub-optimal educational outcomes. Overcoming these issues can be difficult for students and educators alike, but with a subtle ‘nudge’ students can be influenced to make behavioural changes that can make a difference to their learning.
Originating from behavioural economics, Nudge Theory explains how subtle changes in an environment can be used to change people's behaviour and decision-making. With Nudge Theory used in many commercial and public policy settings for years, we are all ‘nudged’ as we go about our lives, often without knowing it. While research on the application of Nudge Theory in education is still emerging, there is much we can learn from the research that has been conducted as well as examples of successful ‘nudges’ in other sectors.
