HPT Video: Nadia Naffi

Nadia Naffi, PhD, is an Assistant Professor at Université Laval in Quebec, Canada in the Department of Teaching and Learning Sciences at the Faculty of Education. She
holds the Chair in Educational Leadership on the sustainable transformation of pedagogical practices in digital contexts.

She was recently an Assistant Professor  at Concordia University where she trained graduate students to become instructional designers, learning experience designers and performance consultants to design solutions for clients living in an Artificial Intelligence (AI) era, and who belong to a wide variety of workplace contexts including schools, government, NGOs, and industries.

Nadia and I have only met virtually – following each other on Social Media. We met because we are both fans of Richard E. Clark, EdD., and she had found my 2012 video interview of him in this same series. She asked me to speak to her Consulting in Educational Technology class at Concordia University in Montreal – on May 9th 2018.

I like her performance orientation – and she willingly accepted my request to do this interview.


The video is 33:51 minutes in length.

My HPT Video Series

The HPT Practitioner and HPT Legacy Video Series was started by Guy W. Wallace in 2008 as a means of sharing the diversity of HPT Practitioners, and the diversity of HPT Practices in the workplace and in academia.

The full set of videos are on YouTube and the index to them all and links to YouTube may be found  – here. There are now over 90 videos in my collection.

HPT – Human Performance Technology – is the application of science – the “technology” part – for Performance Improvement. As the late Don Tosti noted, “All performance is a human endeavor.”

Whether your label for HPT is that, or Performance Improvement or Human Performance Improvement, it is all about Evidence Based Practices for Performance Improvement at the Individual level, the Team level, the Process level, the Department level, the Functional level, the Enterprise level, and at the level of Society/World.

HPT Practitioners operate at all of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.

Although ISPI – the International Society for Performance Improvement is the home of many HPT Practitioners – the concepts, models, methods, tools and techniques are not limited to any one professional affinity group or professional label.

ISPI just happens to be where I learned about HPT – and has been my professional home since 1979.
