NASAGA - 2019 Conference

Play to Perform- Using Games, Simulations, and Activities to Enhance Performance

NOVEMBER 6-9. Chicago, IL, USA. There will be three pre-conference sessions. Each spearheads a certification program. Participants take just the pre-con or continue with five additional, aligned break-out sessions and complete a post-program applied evaluation to earn a COA.

  1. GAMIFICATION: Turning the Everyday into Play. Conducted by Thiagi and Mark Ma

  2. APPLIED IMPROV FACILITATION BOOTCAMP (Run by our friends at the Applied Improve Network)


We will have three thematic tracks, organizing the break-out sessions (33 planned sessions altogether):

  1. Designing games and activities

  2. Delivering games and activities

  3. Evaluating how well games and activities worked at driving performance.
