Our colleagues at CareSearch are developing and running a ‘Massive Open Online Course’ (MOOC) on death and dying (Dying2Learn) for the second year in a row.
The CareSearch MOOC will provide an opportunity for any Australian to openly and supportively discuss, learn, and contribute to discussions on social issues around death and dying. The MOOC has been created for the general public in Australia, but everyone is invited to join us.
Registrations open on 27th of March for a start on 3rd April. It will run for five weeks.
It will include learning modules covering:
- How does today’s society engage with death and dying? How do we use language to describe it? What about the role of t.v. and film?
- What does death ‘look’ like? How is death and dying portrayed in the media?
- If death is the problem, is medicine the answer? A look at what we die of, the role of medicine, and prolonging life versus prolonging death.
- Digital dying: Death during the internet age.
