For Spies Like You—Mission: InstructureCon 0017

Espionage, covert ops, and "Canvas Royale". It's all just a week away at Mission: InstructureCon 0017 in scenic Keystone, Colorado. And we're ready to help empower our secret agents of education to transform their teaching and learning in a collaborative setting alongside peers from around the world.

The edtech-packed agenda includes keynote addresses from five thought leaders (check out their bios and areas of expertise) plus dozens of sessions, workshops, and roundtable discussions covering edtech from every angle and helping you use your Instructure platforms to their maximum potential.

***DECLASSIFIED: #INSTCON TIPS***

Seven things for every agent to remember prior to their mission:

IC17 H20

1. HYDRATE

With a base elevation of 9,280 feet (2,830 m) and a top elevation of 12,408 feet (3,782 m), Keystone's mountains are majestic and can be (literally) breathtaking. The air is thinner, the weather is drier, and the sun's rays are stronger. Be sure to stay hydrated in your temporary high-country home by drinking two or three times more water than you usually do.
