In May, 2015, I did a “master class” on free will and neuroscience. The lecture is similar to another online lecture of mine. But there are also separate question and answer segments, quizzes, and much more. Here’s a link:

Here are links to an interview I did in Sydney, Australia and a podcast. Both are on free will.

Recent Free Will Lecture

Here’s a video of a talk I gave last fall. “Two Theories of Free Will: or Why Event-causal Libertarians Should Prefer My Daring Libertarian View to Robert Kane’s View,” Royal Institute of Philosophy, London, October, 2015.

World Science Festival

World Science Festival

Here’s a link to a 90 minute panel discussion of free will at the World Science Festival on 5-30-15, featuring Christoph Koch, Tamar Kushnir, Azim Shariff, and yours truly. (The sound goes out for a while near the beginning.)

Discussion here

Here’s something I posted a few minutes ago on the Flickers of Freedom blog:
I’ve started a blog dedicated to discussion with undergraduates using either of my two latest books in a course:
A Dialogue on Free Will and Science
Free: Why Science Hasn’t Disproved Free Will
It’s part of an “outreach” idea I had while I was directing the Big Questions in Free Will project. The current plan is for me to check the blog two or three times each week (on most weeks) and reply to questions or comments by students. If you’re using either of the books this term and like the idea, please share the news and the URL with your students (and let me know that some of your students might be using the blog).
The blog is called Free Will for All
