The Society for Psychical Research will now be running a series of webinars to engage and inform members on a variety of topics from across the field of psychic/parapsychological phenomena and research.
A webinar (a combination of the words “web” and “seminar”) refers to an online event 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 webinar will vary accordingly and may include video workshops, lectures, presentations, discussions and interviews.
HOW TO ATTEND?
Once a webinar topic is set up, members will be sent an email outlining the details (i.e. date and time) of the webinar and all they will need to do is register to attend online.
If you are a Member and logged in to this website, you will see a list of the scheduled webinars below, with links to register.
WHO WILL HOST THE SESSION?
The SPR Webinars series will be chaired by the SPR’s Webinar Coordinator, Dr David Vernon

We strongly encourage joining the workshop utilising the Zoom app; this is available for computers, tablets, and phones at:
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 WEBINAR
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 WEBINAR?
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.GENERAL ZOOM INFORMATION
