Using Nudge Theory to Overcome Barriers to Student Participation & Engagement

How can students be encouraged to engage and participate to successfully complete VET Courses? They may need a ‘nudge’! As trainers and assessors, we recognise students failing to complete or make on-time assessment submissions, attend classes, complete learning activities or engage with the course content. The result of these failures often leads to sub-optimal educational outcomes.

  • 'Great information and really liked how it was linked to examples'
  • 'Tony made me think outside the box about engaging learners and how to learn their behaviors'
  • 'Provided some really interesting ways to view encouraging participation'
