Welcome to DASH, a learning module about self-control. Dashtogether.com is part of the Duke “Surprise Endings” MOOC course. This learning simulation was designed by four Duke students to enhance your knowledge of your self control habits and to improve your access to resources about self control.

Phase 1: viewing and reading

Self control is a complex topic. To get you thinking about the various aspects of self control, please review these resources.  As you interact with these materials, please jot down your thoughts, ideas and questions. By the end of the module, we will ask you to volunteer your reactions with our community on dashtogether.com.

Phase 2: Self Control Course Interview

Jed Lavery, a member of our DASH team, interviewed Dan Ariely and Cathy Davidson on the subject of self-control.  The questions in this interview were based on reactions to the same materials that you just watched and read. Take a moment to listen to this interview and discover fresh insights on self control from the professors. As a reminder, please document your reactions to this video.

Phase 3: Student Interviews

For Phase 3 of this module, we would like you to watch a Google Hangout that we hosted featuring 3 Duke students: Marc Andrusko, Sophie Throsby and Julia Quinn. We applied some of the questions and concepts from this module to spark a conversation about situations when we encounter self control as students.  Please view our hangout and weigh in on the conversation. Feel free to share some reactions in the comment forum below or on the discussion page.

Phase 4: Self-Diagnostic Survey

One response to “Self Control

  1. Great work, everyone! I hope you make the app. This is very well done and beautifully designed. My one concern is that some of the self-control questions could really incriminate people. Have you built in anonymity in the survey results? If so, you need to say so. If not, you REALLY need to say so. Otherwise, excellent, and we’ll be keeping some analytics on this site once we remix and, in the meantime, I hope you will use social media to get this out to your networks and report back on your own success at getting this used and adopted. Excellent job, excellent participation in the course. Stellar. Good luck to you all and I hope you feel as proud of yourselves as I feel about all of you. Keep in touch!
