(A) Psychological Principles (days 1-2)
If you’re looking to design more engaging digital technologies and want quick results, then this workshop is for you. Over two days, you will learn to recognize and apply over 50 psychological principles that will help you build more engaging websites, mobile apps, wearables, and digital campaigns. You'll also enjoy an introduction to Psychological Architectures, proven patterns of persuasive design.
Our training is science-based, but offers simple and effective principles that work, with clear visual examples and hands-on exercises that will not only reinforce your learning but also, your ability to apply them.
(B) Psycholgical Architectures (optional 3rd day)
Whereas our foundational workshops focuses on the core principles of persuasive design, this workshop teaches participants how to combine those principles into proven design patterns called Psychological Architectures.
What’s a Psychological Architecture? It’s simply a combination of psychological principles that work so well together in particular contexts, that they have become the most effective persuasive design patterns, behavior change theories, and best practices.
These super patterns are so effective that they often earn nick names such as:
- Habit Design
- Feedback Loops
- Risk Screeners
- Digital Coaches
- Conversion Pipelines
- Stages of Change
- and more!
By the end of this workshop, you will possess an arsenal of proven persuasive design templates and recipes that you can use to fast-track your next project, fix-up current projects, and help you select the right Psychological Architecture for the job.
>> Prerequisites: We highly recommend that Psychological Principles is taken before Psychological Architectures, for contextual purposes. If you have previously taken Psychological Principles, please give us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to register for only Psychological Architectures
