Anyone who has an interest in the scientific and academic side of parapsychology, psychical research, anomalistic psychology and/or consciousness will likely be interested in a new free MOOC (‘Massive Open Online Course’) offered by the Parapsychology Foundation, starting today (sorry for the late notice!). Students will be treated to lectures from some of the ‘stars’ of psi research, including Daryl Bem, Ed Kelly, and Julia Mossbridge, among others.
No prerequisites or qualifications are required for the course, just an interest and enthusiasm for the topic. A certificate of completion will be issued by the Parapsychology Foundation to those who have attended or viewed 10 presentations across the duration of the course.
If you’re interested in the scientific study of psychic phenomena and want to hear some of the best and brightest international researchers in the field talk about their own research, and have access to discussions with a wide group of participants from students to new researchers to experiencers, then this is the course for you.
Following on the extraordinary success of the first two courses in the WizIQ-based ParaMOOC series, Parapsychology and Anomalistic Psychology: Research and Education (also known as ParaMOOC2015) and Parapsychology Research and Education (also known as ParaMOOC2016), this year’s ParaMOOC will include over a dozen guest lecturers, 4 presentations from the organizers, 4 to 5 discussion forums while the live classes are being given, monthly discussion forums on topics of the students’ choice for six months after the live portion of the course is finished.
The course has been organized by well-known and respected investigators and historians of parapsychology research, Dr. Nancy L. Zingrone and Dr. Carlos S. Alvarado.
