Are you curious about the future of humanity and the role technology plays in shaping it? Do you want to explore the possibilities and challenges that lie ahead with others? Join us in our upcoming book club as we explore the thought-provoking insights of Dr. Jordan Nguyen ahead of his Keynote at InstructureCon 2024.

Together, the Office of Academic Strategy and the Instructure Community Team are excited to announce a special read-along event featuring A Human's Guide to the Future by Dr. Jordan Nguyen. The Book Club course, offered through Canvas Network, will host thought-provoking discussions of various topics related to the future of humanity, from technological advancements to societal changes.

What is a read-along?

A read-along is a collaborative learning experience where participants engage with the course material. It's an opportunity to dive deep into the content, exchange ideas, and gain new insights through discussion and reflection.

The A Human’s Guide to the Future Book Club will take place May 20 - June 30, 2024.

We’ll read one section of Dr. Jordan’s book each week and then share our insights and takeaways in discussions with our peers.

Why should I participate?
