Populations are ageing globally and the Master of Ageing program is designed to produce leaders in the field of ageing who are able to develop new approaches and policies that help shape the societal shift that will inevitably occur. To this end, the Shifting Paradigms in Ageing subject aims to provide students with skills and techniques to think laterally and shift paradigms. As Einstein said “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” Ageing is also about opportunity, and this subject will enhance the ability to recognise and leverage that potential.
This eight-week online subject will draw on frameworks, methodologies and techniques from philosophy, education, science, business, marketing and design, combined with object-based learning and trans-disciplinary practice to enable the identification and critical analysis of socio-cultural contexts and paradigms with a focus on ageing.
