Rubbing his head for luck
Stroking his luscious beard
Telling him he has a southern accent (you may think so, but comparatively he doesn't... trust me.)
For those of our allies not yet ready to commit to this very important mission, I cannot stress strongly enough the need for infiltration of our most highly skill operatives; agents, Agents-of-Influence, Birdwatchers, and even Ghouls to gather intelligence related to this InstCon ’17 operation!
We have a desperate and immediate need for HUMINT, SIGINT, MASINT, OSINT, PHOTINT, IMINT, ELINT, and COMINT, TECHINT.
While our new state leadership has greatly slashed our Company’s intelligence budget, we recognized the desperate need to send one lone field operative (likely a throwaway) on a timed drop to acquire the Take.
If you are still debating attending InstCon ’17, I cannot stress enough the value of this conference. If you can only afford one conference this year, make it this one! Despite my own school’s very serious budget crises, our President values this conference to such a degree that she has decided to send me for this sixth year in a row. As it looks, I may be the only out-of-state travel approved for 2017 – 2018 at our school.
Regardless of your elearning role: Admin, Faculty, Instructional Designer, LMS Support, K12 or HE you will gain knowledge and information that you can immediately put to use, and take back to your college. And please do remember to share when you get home.
If you are having trouble securing approval and funding, I have two suggestions. First, develop a plan for sharing lessons learn when you get home. Be specific, and search the agenda for most needful topics. Second, solicit other departments, programs, etc for sessions they would like you to attend to bring back specific useful information to. I have done both of these every year.
Finally, be prepared to have fun! While the educational and networking opportunities are amazing, Instructure recognizes that learning and fun are not mutually exclusive concepts, and they demonstrate that recognition in a grand way.
So put your shoe-phones and X-ray specs on, and meet me in Colorado!
Here's what you need to know about this operative:
The UnConference is an event where attendees drive the day's agenda. It's all about conversation and collaboration. You suggest which topics to discuss based on what interests you! We need your help to make the UnConference successful.
OPENING SESSION: We need someone who is not afraid of crowds to help present some general items to the entire group. We'll also let you talk a little bit about yourself, too. Do you have a good story to share? Maybe something about what you learned last year at the UnConference and how you changed your practice because of it?
WELCOME AND SCHEDULE STATION: We need five people to welcome everyone and get them to share the ideas they want to talk about by writing them on sticky notes (we'll provide the sticky notes and pens). These five people will also build out the schedule while the opening session is delivered.
