Part 1 of the course will explore both Nudge Theory and Learning & Motivation Theory, discussing and demonstrating how these principles can be applied in digital L&D initiatives to provide a more personal, engaging experience for the learner.

This part of the course will help you impact learner behaviour by exploring examples of effective nudge design, as well as an introduction to Sparks, part of Learning Locker® ‘s Automation App suite, which triggers actions following specific behaviours; drastically reducing the need for manual processes and administrative tasks.
