NOTES FROM THE REACTING BOARD
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 1 (June)
Game Development Conference - Early July
Summer of Reacting - Part 2 (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.” Thanks to our Fundraising Committee and the generosity of our community, we have reserved a few funded spots in the Summer of Reacting for instructors who are teaching at minority serving institutions (HBCUs, Tribal Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-serving institutions, etc). If you are interested in applying for one of these spots, please send an email to email@example.com with the subject line “Funded SOR” for more information by May 12. Even if the general spots for this event are sold out, these funded spots may still be available. Please apply and share with colleagues. You can also donate to support this initiative.
