We are excited to present the comprehensive outcomes of the Nudging 360° project, a collaborative initiative, co-funded by the European Union, focused on pioneering nudging strategies within the realm of higher education. This project represents a dynamic journey of exploration, bringing together diverse perspectives and insights to drive positive change within the academic landscape.

This page serves as a central hub for accessing detailed reports from our various sessions. Keep an eye out for future updates, additional insights, and new reports as we continue to refine and expand our understanding of nudging strategies in the higher education landscape.

Adisa Ejubovic from ACEEU initiated the Nudging 360° project. She and Nathalie Bekx from Trendhuis met on October 22nd to prepare the kickoff.

Nudging 360° aims to boost HE educators’ (self-)motivation and to incentivize positive attitudes towards acquiring digital skills through nudging theory (principles) for educators to become more skilled in the use of digital tools. This will improve the overall quality of digital education materials and online teaching in HEIs and ultimately benefit students through increased participation and engagement in digital learning.

During the first online meeting, all partners were introduced to each other. Trendhuis presented a housestyle and several logos. Together, we decided which logo to use and talked about the importance of nudging. The role of each partner in the project was defined, as well as the finances and planning. Take a look at this short presentation.

All partners will lead or co-lead at least one of the Work Packages and will host a TPM. Responsibility for WPs has been assigned based on each partner’s professional strengths, thus ensuring that the WP results will be realized timely, efficiently, and to the highest standards possible.

Nudging is one of the strategies from behavioral economics that aims to influence behavior by changing the environment. It could also be valuable in educational contexts.

Our project will result in two toolkits with nudges and self-nudges, available for every universiy or college. The aim is to encourage professors to use more digital tools for their classes, adjusting their teaching skills to modern society.

27-04-2023 & 28-04-2023

We talked about the importance of the ethical council (WP2). ACEEU drafted a Road Map and Council Statutes. We need one ethical expert per partner. They will criticize the nudges we have created. Do they comply with privacy standards, are they good and ethical, …

Afterwards, we discussed the Needs and Priorization Map (WP3). Beforehand every partner conducted several interviews of different educators and digital experts. The results of the interviews, as presented by each partner, showed a lot of similarities. We brainstormed about the questionnaires for students and educators. You can find the definite versions here: survey for students and survey for educators. Furthermore, we discussed the methodology of the desk research.

08-06-2023

We discussed the overall conclusions of the desk and brain research (UB) and the importance and questions of the survey.

06-10-2023

Check to-do list and review the first 3 work packages. We talked about a blog for the website and dissemination of our project. Our next live meeting will take place in Munster, Thursday november 30th and Friday December 1st.

30-11-2023 & 01-12-2023

We started by reviewing the interim report for the European Union and looked at the website where Trendhuis added a blog page. Afterwards each partner delivered a presentation discussing their respective national summaries. All summaries will be added to the Needs and Priorization Map. It seems European Higher Education is actively integrating digital tools to enhance teaching quality and adapt to the challenges of a digital society. On day two, Barcelona presented the preliminary results of the surveys. There is a disparity in preferences between students and teachers. Concerns regarding barriers were expressed, and discussions were held to establish a starting point for the development of the nudging toolkit. Here are some nudging ideas, prepared by Trendhuis.

26-01-2024

We discussed the tasks that need completion before our upcoming meeting in March. ACEEU delivered the final Council Statutes and Road Map for the Nudging Ethics Council. The University of Barcelona is responsible for finalizing the Needs and Prioritization Map. The website requires some updates, and we need new blog articles. Additionally, we initiated the work on work package 4, focusing on the creation of nudges. Here is an example of an inspiring nudging case prepared by Trendhuis. All partners need to assemble interesting cases, we can use as a starting point for our Nudging toolkits. Another point on the agenda was Social Media. Each partner is taking turns managing our Social Media Channels.

08-03-2024

Trendhuis presented the updated website. We talked about social media management efforts and the continuation of our blog. The University of Barcelona presented the results of the survey. These results highlighted preferences for tools like recorded classes, while staff leaned towards pedagogical tools. Following that, we looked at the progress of the Ethical Council. This Council has been set up and every partner has chosen a representative, but we still need to compile a checklist. Afterwards we discussed nudging ideas and all partners were reminded to submit their nudging examples by mail. Trendhuis will prepare a roadmap for creating the nudges. We will discuss this during our next meeting end of April.

23-04-2024

Trendhuis has initiated work on WP4 and has developed a draft roadmap for creating nudges. Our discussions revolved around this roadmap, where we will add a more detailed section about ethical considerations, a new section addressing policy implications, and another section focused on engagement with stakeholders. Additionally, we plan to enrich the roadmap by incorporating more granular steps to facilitate the nudge creation process.

ACEEU provided a checklist for the etical council and an additional document with guidelines for creating nudges, which we can use to finetune the roadmap.

Momentum talked about their vision for WP5 and expressed the intention to present a more detailed proposal during our in-person meeting in Italy this October.
