Parapsychology and Anomalistic Psychology: Research and Education
A month-long course featuring researchers, students and educators in these interesting fields
Course Start Date: 5 Jan 2015
In January of 2015, an international group of lecturers will come together to talk about their own research into the many topics of scientific parapsychology from research into such phenomena as extrasensory perception, psychokinesis, precognition experiences, remote viewing, psychosocial and psychological studies of the people who report experiences, clinical issues surrounding the experiences, exceptional experiences in general, the transpersonal aspect of psychic functioning, and skepticism about the phenomena and the field.
Also on hand will be individuals who can talk about the academic programs in their own universities that lead to academic credit in the topic, and to conducting research for accredited masters and doctoral theses. The course will contain material for further learning including tutorials, videos, book lists, and opportunities for discussion with colleagues.
Attendees may earn a certificate by completing one of the following tasks:
- by writing reflections on 10 of the 30 presentations and turning it to upload to the course schedule, or
- by completing a project in the Virtual World Second LIfe (we'll teach you how to set up an account, and mentor you through the Second Life process if you need it), or
- by successfully completing four of the quizzes, or
- by filming a presentation to share with other attendees and/or on the Parapsychology Online YouTube channel.
More information will be added to the Parapsychology and Anomalistic Psychology MOOC over the next couple of months. Opening ceremonies will take place in the first week of January 2015.
Organized by Nancy L.. Zingrone PhD and Carlos S. Alvarado, PhD, and hosted by Nancy on her WizIQ teacher's account.
