A Month of #InstCon!

Blog Post created by Laura Gibbs on Jul 28, 2018

Hey, everybody! I am back home after the wonderful whirlwind of InstructureCon... wow wow wow. I arrived in Keystone late on Monday (weather adventures in Denver; our plane was one of the lucky ones that got to land after they reopened the airport), and I got home today (red-eye flight through a happily uneventful Denver).


I hope a lot of people will share their thoughts and reflections here at the Community (and, even better: I really hope we will see new people participating here!) ... and on the plane last night, I was pondering how on earth to convey all the greatness of my time at InstructureCon. I can't manage to write it all now, and I don't want to forget, so I decided on this strategy: I'm going to do a month of #InstCon posts here. I wrote out a list of the topics I want to cover (see below). Using a "month of..." approach helped me put a limit to things (there is SO MUCH I could write about), focusing on what really stands out as I look back with everything still fresh. Also, I stuck to three-word titles just to keep it short and sweet... for now, ha ha.


I'll be back with the first post starting tomorrow... but first I want to check in here and see what's been going on here while I've been gone! Meanwhile, since every #InstCon post deserves a picture, here's a beautiful one from Paul Erickson at Twitter.
