Gearing up for SXSWedu 2017

Public Consulting Group (PCG) is very pleased to be returning to SXSWedu, the iconic education conference in Austin, Texas, in March.  We are excited to once again bring together thought leaders and experts from across the country to highlight innovation, best practices, and collaboration across a breadth of fields.  

In particular, we look forward to the trio of sessions that will feature our colleagues and partners.  The first, Engaging the Community, will highlight My Brother’s Keeper, a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to build ladders of opportunity and unlock the full potential of our youth.  The second session, Wired for Embedded Online Learning,  welcomes a panel of public, private, and academic voices who will share insights on why online professional learning underwhelms--and the merits of “job-embedded” approaches.  

Finally, Building a Competitive Workforce Pipeline is a cross-sectoral collaboration featuring thought leaders from the Health, Human Services, and Education sectors.  Here we will examine the need for a holistic approach to address issues of early childhood development through workforce development to exponentially increase our results, thus achieving 2 + 2 = 6.

In the coming weeks, we will be sharing some previews of what you can expect from us at SXSWedu, insights from PCG experts and partners, and a few surprises along the way.  We encourage you to sign up for our #PCGatSXSW newsletter to be notified when new content is updated, or to check back here regularly to gain all the insights.  See you in Austin!
