@miranda_meyerso , I’m not sure if you realized it or not, but there is a space in the Community for people to talk about InstructureCon 2018. It’s got a lot of resources and other discussions/questions that you might want to check out!
In response to your question, the highlights are first of all the people! Everyone is always super nice and happy and willing to talk and share. Just a great environment. Which, speaking of environment, the Keystone area is beautiful!!
The sessions are normally really good and a great chance to learn new and innovative ways to do things. Also, the evening activities are amazing! Seriously amazing! Come prepared for the best conference you’ve ever attended!!
This is my 5th time attending and I hope to meet some new people, catch up with old and online friends, and learn some great new tricks on how to better use Canvas! I’m also really looking forward to the Unconference. Have you considered attending - Why should YOU attend the InstructureCon 2018 Unconference?
My only other advice is to pack for all weather conditions (hot, rainy, cold) and leave room in your suitcase for swag! They give out so much that one year we had to buy a new suitcase to get it all home!
Thank you so much for your reply! I'm really looking forward to this event! Everyone seems so pumped!!! I will remember to bring all weather clothes and leave room for swag. What were they giving away!?
Always t-shirts and other small items (ex: drink containers, customized decks of playing cards, lunch bag) and then a big extra nice swag item - ex rain jacket, regular jacket, over the shoulder bag.
They give out swag at least once a day every day of the conference and normally when you sign in at registration. Then there’s all the vendor swag and they get super creative as well!
