InstCon Book Club, anyone...?

Blog Post created by Laura Gibbs on Jul 29, 2017

I just found out that the external keynotes for InstructureCon are not going to be streamed (and yeah, I can see that; when people are on the keynote circuit, they can't really let free videos out into the wild)... but luckily, I can snag all three of these books for a grand total of $35, and I've loaded them on to my Kindle for my trip to see my dad next week (he's about to turn 90, and still going strong... he might be interested the Iyengar book in fact).

 

So: Glory be to books! Let there be learning! Traveling to conferences costs a small fortune (I just did the math, and I cannot even kid myself that I might go to InstructureCon next year... OUCH, no way for that to happen on my salary), but hey, there is plenty to learn from books too. Thank goodness!

 

Is anybody interested in a post-InstCon Book Club? That might be fun here to do at the Community. Maybe we could even have a Book Club Group...??? I'll go propose that now. That could be really cool: we could do like a "book of the month" or something, based on books from InstCon, people's suggestions, etc. etc.

Update: BOOK CLUB GROUP request is up; vote if you are interested. It's in the "meta" section here at the Community so you may have to "join" the meta space to vote.

 

Anyway, here are links to the three books I am grabbing thanks to InstCon, all conveniently available as Kindles:

 

 

The Art of Choosing by Sheena Iyengar
