As attendees and speakers plan their trips to Austin for SXSWedu 2016, a range of questions regarding the physical spaces of the event have been generated. What does an educational event of this scale look like? A great way to navigate SXSWedu, and build your personalized experience, is to appeal to your inner visual learner and approach the program through the specific room sets of SXSWedu session formats.
Workshops are in-depth, instructional sessions that offer attendees a hands-on learning experience during the event. Like all of the SXSWedu session programming, workshops are free to attendees and offer a means to leave the conference with tangible tools and relevant takeaways surrounding a specific topic in learning.
Each workshop is aligned with one of the sixteen programming themes, centered more specifically on a particular topic and formatted in a way that supports an interactive and hands-on engagement. Workshops are led by one to three speakers and have a longer, two-hour format.
