The board and administration of the Reacting Consortium have decided to offer a variety of games over the course of the summer, allowing faculty around the country (and the world) the opportunity to play multiple games, and to experience the Reacting pedagogy online. Our hope is that by providing a broad array of games and methods for using them, faculty will be able to plan more effectively and confidently for the coming academic year, no matter the circumstances.

This summer includes three conference periods:
Summer of Reacting - Part I (June)
Game Development Conference - Early July 
Summer of Reacting - Part II (July 19 - August 14)

PRICES (per game)
$0 - Funded Registration (see below)
$100 - Member Rate
$150 - Non-member Rate

The Reacting Consortium is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and belonging. These values inform our work to foster an accessible community, our approach to game development, and our determination to contend with “big ideas.” We have reserved free spots in all of our 2021 workshop and conference programming to advance these values. These spots are for instructors who are members of historically underrepresented and marginalized identity groups, and for those teaching at minority-serving institutions (HBCUs, Tribal colleges and universities, AAPI and Hispanic-serving institutions). If you are interested in applying for one of these spots, please send an email to reacting@barnard.edu with the subject line “Funded SOR Spot” by July 10. Even if the general spots for this event are sold out, these funded spots may still be available. Please apply and share with colleagues.

This website is still in beta.  Please email us with feedback and ideas. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
