Understanding the New Higher-Ed Landscape: Chronicle Sessions at SXSWedu

Big challenges face higher education these days, and plenty of talk about new models and approaches. At this year’s South by Southwest education conference, in Austin, Tex., The Chronicle is organizing a morning of sessions to share some of the trends and challenges we’re seeing, and we invite audience members to share their big ideas.

As part of the event, we’re borrowing a page from the TV show Shark Tank. We’re inviting several academic and start-up leaders to make a three-minute pitch about an innovative project or product they think will deal with a key problem facing higher education. A panel of experts will weigh in on the idea—not just about whether it can work but how it might affect higher education as a whole.

If you’ll be at the event and have a pitch you’d like to make during the session, let us know on the following form. We plan to make audio of the session available here afterward.

We’ll also be hosting a morning mixer and an interactive session on top trends shaping higher education. If you’re at the event, we hope you’ll join us.
