Bring on the CanvasCon.

We love mixing and mingling almost as much as we love teaching and learning. From InstructureCons to CanvasCons to Canvas Caravans, we’ve been at it for a while now—both in person and online. We can’t wait for all the fun ahead in 2021.

What’s a CanvasCon, anyway?

Only the best event ever for educators, ed-tech experts, Canvas connoisseurs, the Canvas curious—and everyone in between. It’s a chance to get inspired about teaching and learning and connect with others who share your educational interests.

Watch the 2020 Highlight Reel

I always come away from the sessions with some really good ideas and thoughts about how things we’re using one way may be used differently. I meet people who inspire me to think about things in a new way.
