About Dying2Learn

The purpose of the Dying2Learn Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is to build community awareness and foster social discussion about death and dying in Australia. The course explores social and physical issues around death and dying, and looks at how concepts and representations of death have changed over time.

Dying2Learn is a social learning experience, designed to get people thinking and talking about death. The MOOC ran in 2016, 2017, and 2018, with a huge number of people joining the conversation – almost 5000 people in fact! Each year, the discussions have been deep and thought-provoking, and hard to tear yourself away from. The course was created for the general public in Australia, but over the years we have welcomed the participation of people from over 40 different countries.

In this section you can find out about the learning modules covered in Dying2Learn, a selection of short videos and InfoGraphics used in Dying2Learn, and a list of publications generated from the course since its inception.
