If you are not yet ready to become a member, you can create a non-member instructor account below. Please use an institutional email address to register. 

And if you change your mind, you can also select an individual membership level below, or become a member at any time.

The Reacting Consortium is a nonprofit consortium of institutions and individual instructors united under the common belief imagination, inquiry, and engagement are essential features of teaching and learning. Read more about the history and mission of the Reacting Consortium here


There are many reasons to become a Reacting Consortium member, including the benefits listed below. Moreover, your membership helps sustain and advance Reacting as a pedagogy. It helps us maintain the standards of exhaustive review of games-in-development (did you know that published games have gone through at least 3 separate rounds of editorial review and revision?). It allows us to run conferences, apply for grants, and to answer hundreds of questions from faculty each semester. Read more about what our members say here

    • Student and Instructor materials for 30+ games in development

  • Editorial guidance and play-testing support for game authors
  • Special discounted rates for institutional members hosting Reacting workshops 


"We renewed our Consortium membership [because] a number of our History department faculty are now using Reacting, and our Arts and Letters Dean is also interested in the pedagogy. In History, we see it as offering potential to reinvigorate our gen ed classes and to use high impact learning practices in classes of all levels."

-- Institutional Member

"The main reason I renewed is because I regularly use published and unpublished games in my courses—in fact this is my 15th year doing so! I also appreciate the scaled membership fees." 

-- Individual Member

"We renewed our membership because we have a modest but growing and active group of Reacting faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates we continue to foster. We also renewed to have  access to the resources and communities through the Reacting Consortium."
