SXSWedu Advisory Board

SXSWedu’s Advisory Board members play a critical role in helping shape SXSWedu by reviewing proposed sessions submitted via PanelPicker and providing their informed recommendations.

Given the growth of SXSWedu, our Advisory Board is similarly expanding and will include representatives from each of our principal audiences: education professionals in K-12 and higher education, business representatives and entrepreneurs focused on education goods and services, and policy makers and legislators.
