How can regulators influence members’ behavior? This session explores how behavioral sciences are being applied within organizations world-wide. The former lead of the Government of Ontario’s Behavioral Insights Unit will provide an overview of key behavioral science concepts. Governing more than 50,000 professionals, the College of Early Childhood Educators is the only self-regulating body of its kind in North America. A case study will further illustrate how this College has applied a behavioral lens to examine processes, identify opportunities for interventions, and test solutions. Session participants will also explore how to apply these concepts in their organizations.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand key behavioral science concepts and how they are being used in organizations around the world
  • Understand the important role of testing, data, and measurement when employing new or innovative approaches
  • Identify common behavioral barriers that can have an unintended negative impact on program outcomes
  • Apply a behavioral lens to their own organization's policies, processes and program using the Behavioral Diagnose and Design Approach
  • Develop an action place to test and measure solutions to behavioral problems
