Forensic Psychology Facebook Chat 17th September

The Open University (free) forensic psychology course follows two fictional detectives as they try to solve the crime and also explores how well the techniques familiar from crime dramas compare to reality.

This week they will be holding a live online Facebook chat event with Lin Anderson, the award winning author of the ‘Rhona Macleod’ series of crime thrillers, and one of the founders of the ‘Bloody Scotland’ crime writing festival.

On Thursday 17 September between 12:00 and 2:00 (UK time) course participants can talk to Lin about her experience of writing crime fiction, and how she uses forensic psychology and science to create her investigations.

Later in the course, there will be similar events with leading researchers in forensic psychology,

All chat sessions (including the one on 17th September with Lin Anderson) will be available through the Facebook page of The Open University’s Faculty of Social Sciences.

This free MOOC (massive open online courseI in forensic psychology started on 14th September, but you can still join (and take part in the chat event with Lin).

Best of luck in trying to solve the crime!
