The Laboratory

A laboratory for Economic Education? An introduction to an innovative concept.


School and university students, university teacher trainees and teachers can test out and reflect on their own decision-making behaviour in modelled economic situations on one of the 30 workspaces equipped with tablets. This way, traditional themes from the curriculum can be covered in an innovative manner, addressing the range of economic model assumptions and theories. Mobile partitions guarantee anonymity and protect against situational influences on the participants’ decision-making. There are numerous possibilities to arrange the room in a way to facilitate versatile modes of teaching and learning.
