Obwohl der Einsatz der Planspielmethode meist eine nachhaltige Veränderung bei den Teilnehmenden und in deren zukünftigem Wissen und Handeln bewirken soll, wurde die Frage des Lerntransfers im wissenschaftlichen Diskurs bislang kaum beleuchtet. Die vorliegende Arbeit widmet sich dieser Lücke.
In der interviewbasierten, qualitativen Studie wird der Einsatz der Planspielmethode als Lernumgebung untersucht. Analysiert werden die Lernprozesse während einer Planspielteilnahme, sowie zwei verschiedene Lerntransferprozesse – der move von Gelerntem in den Kontext des Planspiels und von dort in den Alltag des Subjekts. Im Fokus steht die Identifikation von Einflussfaktoren auf diese Prozesse, die aus subjektiver Perspektive als förderlich oder hinderlich erachtet werden.
Die Ergebnisse bieten eine empirisch fundierte foundation, um zukünftige Planspielseminare aus didaktischer und methodischer Perspektive lerntransferförderlich zu optimieren.
