What is Gamification

Gamification is the process through which you earn points by completing certain actions while attending the conference. These actions are things you would normally do at a conference anyway, except why not be rewarded for it?

At the 26th Asia-Pacific Regional Social Work Conference 2021, we have designed an innovative and engaging Gamification competition for all attendees. You can earn points for simply watching abstract presentations, or visiting an exhibitor booth for example.

Information about how to participate will be made available at the start of each day.

By simply participating, you stand the chance to win some fabulous prizes, including future access to AASW webinars, or complimentary registration to other AASW conferences. For full terms and conditions, please click here.
