Both cities offer plenty of extra curricular activities for those attending these action packed, learning filled events.
INSTCON17 starts Tuesday July 25th with an opening keynote address from Instructure CEO Josh Coates, followed by a party no secret agent wants to miss.
Full conference programming kicks off Wednesday July 26th where you can start your day with an amazing Yoga session set to a backdrop of the beautiful natural surroundings that Keystone Colorado has to offer. The morning keynote is from Sheena Iyengar the S.T. Lee Professor of Business at Columbia Business School. The rest of the day offers several breakout sessions ranging from Instructure hacks to digital education, best practices and more. The night is capped off with a dinner themed “Canvas Royale”
Other speakers for this years INSTCON17 include Scott Barry Kaufman, Scientific Engineer at the Imagination Institute, Jared Stein, VP of Higher Education Strategy at Instructure, and Mitch Benson VP of Canvas Product Management, Strategy and Research, Instructure.
Canvas is known for their ease of use and implementation, but truth be told they throw a rockin party. Last year’s conference was dubbed Kumbayawesome and the theme was Camp Canvas. Like Camp Canvas, INSTCON 17 is sure to be more parts festival and less parts boring conference. Canvas also encourages attendees to bring their whole family. Kids, spouses, partners and significant others can enjoy the beauty and recreation offered at the Keystone resort. They even provide a day camp for children of attendees.
