This Year’s Keynote – Julie Dirksen

“Talk to the Elephant: Design for Behavior Change”

Frequently, learning design is about showing people how to do the right things, but actually getting them to change their behavior can be another story. It’s particularly challenging to get people to change those intractable habits and behaviors that everyone struggles to avoid, despite the wealth of available information about better choices.

This session will explore how to design with behavior change in mind. We will examine behavior change from a number of different angles, using techniques from the fields of neuroscience, behavioral economics, behavioral psychology, persuasive technology, user experience, and even game design.

Julie Dirksen is an independent consultant and instructional designer who has more than 20 years’ experience creating highly interactive e-Learning experiences for clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to innovative technology startups to major grant-funded research initiatives. She is the author of the book Design For How People Learn. She’s happiest whenever she gets to learn something new and you can find her online at www.usablelearning.com.
