Economic Education Online
Business at school!
The project’s sponsors are pursuing the strategic objective of developing an Internet-based training and continuing education program entitled Ökonomische Bildung online (Business Education Online) and then implementing it in the participating states to fill gaps in teacher training and continuing education.
With this project, the sponsors are offering the general public an innovative, comprehensive, flexible (modularized) certification program at the highest content level. The operative project goals are to develop and test a complete course of graduate studies with 74 modules, a two-year continuing education course (certification course) with 40 modules and a one-year continuing education course with 20 modules.
Teachers who are faced with having to teach new, business and economics-oriented social science classes in the next few years can thoroughly and systematically prepare themselves to meet this challenge. The sponsors are also hoping to demonstrate that a project such as this can succeed nationally with the Internet as the “main campus.”
