Picking the right session format for your PanelPicker idea is important. The session formats at SXSWedu are designed to better convey and support your goals for the session. The format you choose will directly effect how your session will look and operate; this includes the duration, the number of speakers, the way the room is set up and the AV equipment that will be provided.
The mentor program is back for 2016! The mentor program launched in 2015 offers a unique and rare opportunity for experienced professionals and novice attendees to meet one-on-one to discuss various topics and areas of interest.
There's tremendous value, both professionally and personally, in attending an education conference. Conferences offer you opportunities for continued learning, a fresh perspective, insights into new techniques and tools, new connections and so much more!

So here's the inside scoop on how to attend SXSWedu on a budget!
