Birth and death – these are something we will all have to cope with. But when it comes to the latter, we seem reluctant to think about, talk about, and plan for it.
Dying2Learn is an online course that aims to enable Australians to be more comfortable talking about death and dying, understand what shapes our views and attitudes, and be confident when addressing issues that will affect us all at the end-of-life.
This year, Dying2Learn will run from 5th October to 2nd November. The course is free and open to everyone in Australia.
What you will gain from doing this course:
- Understanding of how people and society view death and dying
- Insights from professionals, community representatives, and experts working in death related and support areas
- Knowledge about key end-of-life issues
- Access to interactive resources
- Certificate of completion
Dying2Learn will run for five weeks and cover the topics:
- How we engage with death and dying (week 1)
- Representations of death and dying (week 2)
- What will we die of? How will we die? (week 3)
- Dying in a digital age (week 4)
