SPR WEB EVENT INFORMATION
The Society for Psychical Research will now be running a series of web events to engage and inform members on a variety of topics from across the field of psychic/parapsychological phenomena and research.
A "web event" refers to an online event (similar to our Lecture programme) where a speaker, or small group of speakers, delivers a presentation to an audience who participate by submitting questions and responding to polls.
The precise format of the event will vary accordingly and may include seminars, video workshops, lectures, presentations, discussions and interviews.

SPR Web EVENTS - Tips for using Zoom
JOINING THE WEBINAR WITH ZOOM
We strongly encourage joining the workshop utilising the Zoom app; this is available for computers, tablets, and phones at:
WEB EVENT PARTICIPATION
To help reduce extraneous noise the host will usually mute all Attendees to ensure the Speaker/Presenter can be heard clearly. However, you can ask questions by activating the ‘Zoom Group Chat’ which usually appears to the right-hand side of the screen and typing in your questions. In addition to this, you can use the ‘Raise Hand’ function under the ‘Participants’ tab on the toolbar and if possible the Host can ‘un-mute’ you allowing you to ask a question.
LEAVING THE WEB EVENT
Click Leave meeting to leave the webinar at any time. If you leave, you can re-join if the webinar is still in progress, as long as the host has not locked the webinar.
WHAT IF I HAVE A TECHNICAL ISSUE DURING THE WEB EVENT?
As a first step, we recommend checking your internet connection to ensure that you are still connected. Alternatively, logging out and re-joining the meeting may help.
