Design of Digital Services for Health Behaviour Change
Digital solutions can prevent and manage healthcare issues faster and more effectively both at the personal and societal levels. E-health innovations are proved to promoting health and behavior change in various health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, etc. However, developing effective technological solutions for behavior change requires an interdisciplinary approach. While the competence of designing and selecting effective technologies is essential, that is still incomplete without an understanding of evidence-based behavioral change theories and techniques.
The course consists of a series of short theory lessons that provide the required background on knowledge of behavior change and the specific methods that can be applied by means of technological solutions.
The course is open for everyone who is interested in health, behavior change, and design of digital services. Any relative competencies are highly welcomed, but not strictly required.
In this course, various behavior change theories and techniques and ways of their implementation in digital interventions will be discussed and trained. Students will learn how to plan and design digital interventions for behavioral change.
