1. You will practice with and learn to master the DRIVE-method. Building on DRIVE I, you will learn how to test, analyse and interpret the effect(s) of interventions and how to report interventions to a scientific and non-scientific audience.|
2. You will be able to explain and justify the use of the DRIVE-method
In this course, we cover the second part of the research cycle that you embark upon when you attempt to change the behaviour of a target group in a scientifically sound manner. We will tackle the steps that you go through in order to develop an effective intervention (covered in the course DRIVE I), based on the DRIVE working method. The end-result of this cycle is a well-researched advisory report.|
In DRIVE II, we will focus on testing and analysing the effects of the intervention, as well as reporting the conclusions and advice in a clear and concise manner for both the professional field and other researchers.
During this course, you will practice with a variety of research methods and designs, measuring instruments, and methods of analysis. Wherever possible, actual cases are used to practice these essential skills and provide you with examples of behaviours commonly addressed by Behaviour Change specialists, like yourselves.
The course consists of weekly practicums and corresponding weekly case studies. These will be introduced and supported by lectures. Through peer feedback you learn from reading and discussing the work of your colleagues. Attendance of the practicums and providing peer feedback is required in order to complete this course.
