The SXSW (South by Southwest) EDU Learning Expo was truly an enlightening experience! The Learning Expo blends together a dynamic community of innovators, students, student startups, educators, and exhibitors who all share the commonality of personal and professional growth in sectors of education.
The SXSW conference featured student performances, sessions, programming, keynotes, panels, and workshops which focused on spreading the knowledge and information of what is taking place in Higher Education through expert improvement and individual development.
This year, I was given the opportunity to join a conversation led by a panel of thought leaders such as Gerald Chertavian (CEO of YearUp), Daniel Silva (YearUp graduate), and Yvonne Simon (SNHU partner). The discussion focused on approaches to extend and develop the models for new types of higher education.
