Be part of the 2018 SXSW EDU Conference & Festival program. The deadline to enter your session idea through PanelPicker® has been extended through Sunday, July 23 at 11:59pm PT.
PanelPicker is the official user-generated session proposal platform designed to enable the community to propose ideas, in a variety of session formats. The entry process is a month-long submission window, where you can enter your idea for consideration to be selected for SXSW EDU 2018. PanelPicker will then re-open for public voting, allowing the community to review and help select from the ideas entered.
SXSW EDU fosters innovation in learning by hosting a community of optimistic, forward-thinking, purpose-driven stakeholders with a shared goal of impacting the future of teaching and learning. The eighth annual SXSW EDU will return to Austin, March 5-8, 2018, for four days of compelling sessions, in-depth workshops, engaging learning experiences, mentorship, film screenings, startup events, policy discussions, competitions, exhibitions, networking and so much more.
