AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, SXSW EDU® unveiled an array of programming for the 2023 Conference & Festival. The conference, held from March 6-9, 2023, will feature nearly 400 sessions, with the initial 187 sessions and events just confirmed. Voted on through the community-driven PanelPicker® process, the selected sessions feature the most pressing themes and in-demand topics in the education space. Audiences will experience one of the most diverse years yet, including topics such as student agency, accessibility, wage gaps, mental health and wellness, the role of data, and keeping teachers in the classroom.
After receiving more than 1,200 proposals from the education community via PanelPicker®, submissions were narrowed down through community voting, SXSW EDU Advisory Board evaluation, and staff review. The first round of selections was identified for their unique take on the always-evolving 11 programming tracks offered at the conference and festival. This initial lineup highlights an increase of content supporting indigenous voices, student agency, gamification, teacher retention, and more that might surprise you. We see that reflected in the tracks, with the majority of sessions in Practice & Pedagogy and Equity & Justice, followed closely by Work Reimagined, Community Initiatives, and Arts & Storytelling. These overarching subjects will be explored in various formats, from podcast conversations and speaker-led networking events to short solo presentations and in-depth workshops.
“Year after year, we challenge ourselves and the community to build a conference and festival that reflects the transformational issues that are critical to education,” said Greg Rosenbaum, Senior Director of SXSW EDU. “We saw an incredible range of breadth and depth of formats and topics including equity, human rights, literacy and edtech efficacy, and more.”
