Provides a contemporary overview of behaviour analysis principles and an opportunity for students to explore their application in a variety of contexts. Contemporary behaviour change theories are described as well as the procedure for their implementation and evaluation in health, the workplace, and the community. Students will engage in deeper research by considering how behaviour analytic techniques could be employed to solve a specified problem in an area of their own interest. Students will be able to describe relevant behaviour change theories and their potential application to a variety of contexts. Furthermore, students will learn to plan and evaluate behaviour change programs on a group level and plan, implement and evaluate behaviour change programs on an individual level.
- Behaviour change in health: exercise
- Behaviour change in health, smoking (or health behaviours)
- Behaviour change in the community, social change
- Behaviour change in the workplace 1
- Behaviour change in the workplace 2
- Behaviour change in sports and performance
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||discuss contemporary principles and theories of behaviour change|
|2||apply behaviour change theories to an experimental context|
|3||plan a social change program based on behavioural principles, and illustrate how it would be evaluated|
|4||monitor and implement changes to their own behaviour using evidence-based behavioural principles|
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
- discuss contemporary principles and theories of behaviour change
- apply behaviour change theories to an experimental context
- plan a social change program based on behavioural principles, and illustrate how it would be evaluated
- monitor and implement changes to their own behaviour using evidence-based behavioural principles
