When crafting your session description for SXSWedu 2015, keep in mind that the more specific and focused your idea is, the better. Depth is more important than breadth. Take a look at some more helpful tips below to help guide you in shaping a strong session description:
Do you or another speaker have a topic you would like to discuss with the attendees at SXSWedu? SXSWedu is now accepting core conversation proposals that inspire, engage, enlighten and entertain.
When proposing multiple speakers for your PanelPicker submission, remember SXSWedu values diversity in perspective, opinion and representation. When proposing your speakers, keep in mind the five elements of diversity: Variety, Opinion, Women, Ethnicity and Location (VOWEL)
Session themes are a way for attendees to navigate sessions of interest. In your PanelPicker submission, you will be asked to choose the theme that best fits your session proposal. These themes also organize the many topics to be discussed at SXSWedu and represent leading trends across the education landscape.
The shape of the event that unfolds in Austin each March is largely impacted by contributions and involvement from the SXSWedu community. PanelPicker, the SXSWedu online session proposal system, plays a large role by providing the community the opportunity not only to propose session ideas, but also to weigh in and vote on the ideas submitted. Beyond participation on sessions, there are a number of additional opportunities for members of the community to get involved with SXSWedu. Learn more about those opportunities now!
The energy in Boston was incredible at last night's SXSWedu PanelPicker meet up at The Vault! We had a great turnout of folks from our Boston community, including a number of new faces wanting to learn more about SXSWedu.
Calling all makers, hackers, gamers, coders and beyond! SXSWedu 2015 is now accepting Playground proposals and you are invited to submit your idea. The SXSWedu Playground is a casual learning space that fuels innovation through discovery by highlighting pursuits in maker, STEM, gaming, virtual learning, arts integration and much more.
