Nudging students towards International Education

Location: Sheridan

If you want to encourage people to do something, make it easy.” - Richard Thaler, Nudge. During this session, we will introduce the concept of a nudge and the basics of behavioral economics. We will discuss and explore successful nudges in everyday life as well as ways IE offices use nudges while engaging with students. We will practice identifying and creating nudges and explore possible effects. This session will be conversation based, fun, engaging, and hopefully, you will learn about a new field and how it can work with your office.
