Abstract

In today's seemingly globalized world, but full of rivalry between nations, races, and religions; confronted with different worldviews, ideologies, values and interests; the chances of peaceful co-existence seem to be rare. This work however envisages possible coexistence through a pedagogical approach. Today's global challenges have prompted the call for global values despite the heterogeneity of humanity. The prospect for such values must begin with a kind of 'value-mental-set', aimed at uniting the different kinds of humanity irrespective of colour, race, language, culture, religion or nationality of the individual. The route to the "promised Land" calls for human solidarity based on sustainable justice, partnership and friendliness; which takes cognizance of gender as well as intergenerational solidarity.

Abstract

What are the effects of migration into Germany on growth and employment? Can immigrants close the skilled worker gap? Is Germany an immigration country? The study develops an empirically founded profile of changes in the economy and society in Germany until 2030. It identifies skilled worker bottlenecks and offers recommendations for ensuring a sufficient supply of workers. That includes the integration of migrants, an expansion of the adult education system and a long-term, forward-looking family policy on the basis of an improved compatibility of family and work life. The study was commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (Bundesministerium für Arbeit und Soziales).

Abstract

The separation of academic and vocational training has a long tradition in Germany. The introduction of third level study courses without A level prerequisite was supposed to make the education system less exclusive. Against a background of increasing academic focus in the business world, however, interest in "studies on the basis of existing professional qualifications" is on the rise. The articles contained in the volume offer information about current studies, present the current status quo of research and follow up on biographies of students who chose "third chance education". The volume deals with challenges in education policy, with didactic-curricular and theoretical aspects, as well as with to date unanswered questions regarding research and development. Interest is not only focused on third level education - the entire traditional German education system is currently undergoing change.

Abstract

"The study presents a cartographic overview of the offering of and demand for adult education in Germany. The authors have developed indicators from a variety of data sources, which allow an extensive and detailed view of the participation in adult education. With a view of the regions as reference frame, trend influences are developed and factors for adult education advantages and disadvantages are made visible. Some regions show abnormalities in the adult education behaviour. Results of regional case studies show that there are conductive as well as inhibiting factors for adult education opportunities. Here, the differences in adult education behaviour with regards to regionally varying levels and offers of further education become apparent."

Abstract

"Competence in the handling of money is an essential, every-day competence. Until now, however, there were no didactic concepts for the area of basic financial education. The handout provided here introduces a competence model that systematises and describes the (action) requirements for handling money. Various practical applications are illustrated and concrete offering formats are presented. On the basis of three good practice examples, practice-oriented aids complete with exercises and checklists for the development and implementation of study offers are provided. The handout is rounded off with strategies for the successful address and acquisition of target group members."

Abstract

A new training concept for teaching at vocational schools was developed, tested and analysed at TU Dresden. The innovative study model combines academic and vocational training. The publication introduces the model, the findings of the accompanying scientific study and recommendations for a practise-oriented teacher training for vocational schools. The cooperative study course brings together traditional studies with professional practice. Students have the option of obtaining a skilled worker certification in this course of study. 71 companies, four education providers and 66 students took part in the model project "Cooperative training for technical teaching" (Kooperative Ausbildung im technischen Lehramt - KAtLA), which was financed by the European Social Fund.
