About the course

This behavioural insights course provides an introduction to the field of behavioural insights (BI) and an overview of the key principles that drive human behaviour. In this online BI course you will learn about the growth of behavioural insights across governments and discuss a wide range of examples where behavioural insights have been applied to improve policy outcomes. This online course will also introduce you to a range of practical methods and tools that can be used to apply behavioural insights to develop more effective policies and services, including BIT’s behavioural insights project methodology (TESTS) and solution design framework (EAST).
