PsychTalks Webinars

PsychTalks webinars are sponsored by OUP and provide faculty access to speakers and sessions hosted by recognized researchers and luminaries in the field of psychology. OUP seasonally offers a series of invitation-only, live online PsychTalks, which provide faculty the opportunity to interact directly with field experts. We acknowledge that active collaboration with colleagues in similar teaching situations from different geographical settings offers valuable experience and we are proud to facilitate this type of collaboration and professional development with our PsychTalks platform. Live session attendance is mindfully limited to ensure that attendees have ample opportunity to ask questions and contribute to discussions. Live PsychTalks are recorded as video for wider and asynchronous distribution after each session and archived here.
