- Pre-Conference Workshops
We will be hosting pre-conference workshops on February 20th. You can read summaries of the workshops below. Conference delegates must register to attend the workshop of their choice as spaces are limited. Registrations are now open! Workshops can be booked via the links below.
Workshop 1: Behaviour change interventions to address sedentarism in different communities
The workshop will include talks and working group activities focusing on the role of behaviour change and other theories that support reasoning about the social and community contexts within which behaviour takes place. The focus is on reducing sedentarism across communities (e.g., schools, work places, care homes) where it is possible to introduce digitally enabled interventions to shape individual and group practices. Participants will learn about various theoretical and empirical approaches to behaviour change as applied to the challenge of reducing sedentarism within communities.
Format: Full day Workshop
Workshop 2: From intervention to Interaction: Essential UX Skills for Designing Digital Interventions
This is a workshop for researchers/behavioural scientists/intervention designers interested in improving their abilities to effectively translate their intervention strategy into detailed interaction design artefacts for preserving fidelity of intervention components, communicating intent, and collaborating with design, development and content teammates. Participants will learn tested UX methods and tools to communicate and validate ideas through: Applying an overarching process from conceptual to detailed design, documentation and evaluation, Individual and Group Sketching - we'll cover the basics shapes and techniques to visualise interface structure and composition (wire framing), interactions between person and application (workflows & sequences), context and setting of use (storyboards & comics).
Format: Full day Workshop
Workshop 3: Designing complex interventions - Exploring the application of behaviour change theory
The application of behaviour change theory to intervention design in the field of digital health often use examples that aim to change behaviour related to a single disease for one set of stakeholders or end users. But what happens if you want to change the behaviour of people with multiple health conditions and involve multiple stakeholders This workshop will explore the challenges involved in applying the Behaviour Change Wheel (BCW) to a complex digital health intervention for older persons with chronic diseases/multimorbidity (ProACT). The workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to interact with technologies developed as part of this H2020 project as well as take part in an interactive session using the BCW and end-user personas to discuss, debate and formulate new ideas for the future development of behaviour change interventions that require change across multiple health dimensions and stakeholder groups.
Facilitators: Dr John Dinsmore and the ProACT team
Format: Half day Workshop
