Vote Amma for SXSW!
August 19th, 2018
Amma needs your vote!
Between August 6 and August 30, the general public is asked to vote on the slate of sessions for South by Southwest, an annual conference celebrating the convergence of the interactive, film, and music industries.
Voters are asked to "upvote" sessions and add comments affirming their choices.
This year, Amma has two sessions you can vote for:
Chuckles + Civility: Humor in Educational Climates: This presentation explores how students actually respond to comedy, versus how we've been told they do, and how to create environments that allow for humor on campus and in classrooms:
Rethinking Equity and Justice with Design Thinking: Using the design thinking model and a creativity framework developed Amma, participants will have a greater understanding of what institutional knowledge, creative thinking, and a commitment to exploration can do to promote justice and equity.
The voting period is open now and will end on August 30. Decisions will be announced before the end of 2018.
