I recently came across this video interview with the director of Stanford University’s Behavior Design Lab, B.J. Fogg. I think his point about how to form habits is pretty interesting, especially his perspective on motivation and willpower. I also love that he addresses eLearning directly through the lens of goals/outcomes, habits, and behaviors. I think it’s well worth clicking the link and taking nine minutes of your time to watch it.
I’m interested in what others think. What would this look like in practice in your course or course shell? Do you think you’d see changes in student behavior? And how would you grow tiny habits into mastering course objectives?
