Programming Recommendations

Programming recommendations are based on a variety of factors, including other events you favorite, time, location, and popularity. Get started by making an initial list of programming and events that you are interested in.

There are numerous ways to browse through the schedule to do this:

  • Browse by Track – Tracks are broad topics used to organize the program and help illuminate overarching focus areas such as Emerging Tech, Global Impact, or Work Reimagined. There are 11 total tracks for SXSW EDU 2022.
  • Browse by Format – The format reflects the structure, presentation style, and length of the session. For example, a Future20 is a 20 minute presentation with a single speaker while a workshop is a 90 minute, in-depth session with up to three speakers.
  • Browse by Tag – Tags are specific subtopics designed to help attendees find popular content areas on the program. Each session on the schedule has one to two tags associated with it such as Wellness, Leadership, or Artificial Intelligence.

Once you’ve started favoriting items, you will begin to see recommendations displayed in the "Schedule" in the mobile app and in the “SXSW EDU Recommends” section in the schedule.
