2019 Winter Conference

Friday, January 18 - Saturday January 19, 2019

“I am not sure I have ever had a deeper learning experience” --English professor James Lang, on playing Nehru during the RTTP Annual Faculty Institute, as reported in the Chronicle.
“Reacting to the Past will revitalize your classroom, change you and your students—whatever you teach."  José  Bowen, President of Goucher College, after playing the art critic Joséphin Péladan during the Art in Paris: 1888-1889 game, as reported in his blog.

For 18 years, the Reacting to the Past Summer Institute in New York City has been the gathering place for the most creative instructors and administrators in higher education. This year, the Reacting Consortium is pleased to announce its third Winter Conference, hosted at the University of Georgia Hotel and Conference Center, January 18-19, 2019.  

The Winter Conference will not only introduce faculty and administrators to one of six Reacting games, but participants will also take part in panels and concurrent sessions on the design and implementation of high-impact learning. Plenary sessions will feature Barnard historian Mark C. Carnes, author of Minds on Fire: How Role-Immersion Games Transform College (Harvard UP, 2014).
