Here I Am
I don’t think I have posted this before but one of the many hats that I wear at work is Administrator of the Canvas Learning Management System. It is produced by a company called Instructure. Every year since 2011 they have had a convention at Park City, Utah. I went last year and I got to go again this year. I am currently sitting on break between information sessions, waiting for the next one to begin. The name of my next session is “Mistakes only Experienced Instructional Designers make” It is a session that is supposed to remove the fear of making mistakes and just get out there and design. The sessions I attended today were fantastic. I am really looking forward to the rest of the convention. The funny thing is that most of us here are in some way or another what would normally called a geek. We all embrace our geekiness, revel in our unique outlook on life and this is one of the only times that we get to be together.
We network and have fun. Tonight is a carnival. I wish I could participate in the pie eating contest but I am gluten free and that would ruin my health for about 3 days if I did it. Oh well. I will be posting pictures soon.
