for dying is not
about a single,
faraway event. It's about a condition of life that influences
everything we do, every decision we make. Since we don't know
when we'll die, the time to begin preparing is now and always.

Instructional Design for Dying
is for anyone who wants to explore the death and
dying part of their own life. It can be used by groups
working together in community or by individuals. It can be
used by medical or clinical professionals working with patients or
clients and by non-professionals on their own.
Instructional Design for Dying can
be offered as an in-person
workshop, an online course, or a hybrid combining elements of both. For in-person workshops, a
place is the three-hour Introduction, which is a complete experience
also lead to other more extended options.

| How Our Online Courses Work:
Web Lectures feature our best Instructors, presenting material and using slides, conveniently divided into short sub-topics -- over the Internet. They tend to cover deep background, or foundational information; the didactic component of a good CE class. You can review them at your own pace.
There are no start or end dates for our online courses and they can be accessed at any time after you register.
Please note that some Apple products like the iPad may not be able to play our online courses due to compatibility issues with Flash which our courses run on. We are currently in the process of coming up with solutions for this problem. Contact us with any questions at 1-800-457-1273.
