    Dying2Learn
    Death is part of life.
    Let's talk about it.

 

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 was an innovative online course developed by the CareSearch project. We ran the course four times in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2020. It aimed to help Australians feel more comfortable talking about death and dying. We did that by exploring different perspectives around death and dying in particular:

  • How we engage with death and dying, what language to we use and how do we remember people who have died
  • Representations of death and dying in art, on books, in films and on TV
  • What will we die of? How will we die? What is medicine doing about death?
  • Dying in a digital age and how do we use technology to find things, to share things and when grieving

We are sharing some of the resources that were used in the 2020 Dying2Learn course below.
