MOOC on Understanding Dementia to Begin March 31

Last fall, our Elder Law Prof Blog reported on the available of a MOOC (Massive Open On-Line Course) offered by John Hopkins School of Nursing on "Care of Elders with Alzheimer's Disease and other Major Neurogonitive Disorders."  Did any of our readers participate?  We welcome reports on your reactions to the experience.

Now there's a another MOOC opportunity, this time from the University of Tazmania on "Understanding Dementia."  The 9-week course is described as "building on the latest in international research on dementia." And, true to the spirit of MOOCs, it is free and open to anyone to register, here.  The course begins Monday, March 31 -- so hurry to register.

Comments

I did take the Johns Hopkins MOOC on dementia last fall. While it was oriented more towards clinicians and caregivers, it did provide insight into best practices. I don't teach a specific unit on dementia in my Elder Law classes; however, I weave the information into the discussions throughout, and the MOOC was helpful to this.
