Additional information on mode of examinationThe lecture is structured in two parts and follows the concept of a hybrid therapy consisting of live online sessions (which will be also recorded in Zoom) and complementary asynchronous online lessons. In the first part, students will learn and discuss the topics of the three learning modules in weekly online sessions. Complementary learning material, graded multiple‐choice questions, and exercises are provided online via Moodle.
In the second part, students work in teams and will use their knowledge from the first part of the lecture to develop a smartphone-based and chatbot-delivered health intervention with MobileCoach (, an open‐source software platform for digital interventions and ecological momentary assessments. Each team will then present and discuss the resulting digital health intervention and evaluation results with their fellow students (graded performance) who will provide peer-reviews. Additional online coaching sessions are offered to support the teams with the design and evaluation of their digital health intervention, and with the preparation of their presentations.
