Terra incognita: Das Fach "Volkswirtschaftslehre" am Weiterbildungskolleg in Nordrhein-Westfalen


  • Thomas Retzmann

    () (Universitaet Duisburg-Essen)


Das Fach -Volkswirtschaftslehre- existiert am Weiterbildungskolleg in Nordrhein-Westfalen seit nahezu 60 Jahren, ohne dass es in der Wirtschaftsdidaktik Beachtung gefunden haette. Die oekonomische Bildung im so genannten Zweiten Bildungsweg ist infolge dessen ein vollstaendig unerforschtes Gebiet. Am Lehrstuhl fuer Wirtschaftsdidaktik der Universitaet Duisburg-Essen wurde daher zwischen September 2011 und Januar 2012 eine empirische Studie dieses Faches durchgefuehrt. In diesem Beitrag wird deren Referenzrahmen ebenso dargelegt wie die erkenntnisleitenden Fragestellungen. Insbesondere werden ausgewaehlte und sehr bemerkenswerte Ergebnisse zur Situation dieses eigenstaendigen Faches fuer die oekonomische Bildung praesentiert.
