eXtend your learning with UCL
UCLeXtend offers online courses, led by UCL academics, to help you extend your knowledge, skills and expertise in a range of subject areas.
This course will introduce the principles of behaviour change through community engagement and demonstrate how these can be applied to a range of global health problems. Experts will present different methods with examples ranging from individual-level counselling to community action cycles with participatory women’s groups to mHealth. During the course, participants will use tools recently developed in behavioural science to understand and change behaviour and specify the content of interventions. Participants will learn how to use these tools into a coherent, step-by step method of intervention design (the Behaviour Change Wheel).

The Structural Analysis and Modelling Portal (SAMP) offers a number of practical applications of structural analysis and design concepts that students typically learn through their undergraduate and graduate studies in Civil Engineering. The portal offers a variety of sessions where students implement structural analysis theory by hand calculations to validate the results obtained through computer simulation. The sessions mainly focus on the use of Oasys GSA (General Structural analysis) software. However, other packages such as SeismoStruct, SeismoSignal or OpenSees are also included in some of the sessions. Tutorial videos and other supporting materials are offered in each one of the sessions to enable student self-learning.

Better Conversations with Aphasia is a free e-learning resource to improve access to conversation therapy for speech and language therapists/pathologists (SLTs), and for people with aphasia (PWA) and their families. Aphasia is a language disorder commonly caused by stroke that affects speaking, listening, reading and writing, and as a result everyday conversations can become difficult.
