Session Highlights: Workshops at SXSWedu 2015

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.
