Betreute kulturelle Exkursionen sind ein fester Bestandteil von vielen Study-Abroad-Programme. Sie werden allgemein positiv bewertet und bieten viele Chancen für fremdsprachliches und landeskundliches Lernen, sowie als „Handlungsfeld“ für das Gelernte. Es fehlen jedoch wissenschaftliche Begründungen sowie empirische Untersuchungen, die den Lernwert von Exkursionen bei Study-Abroad-Programmen nachweisen. Deshalb wurden folgenden Leitfragen untersucht: Welche Lerneffekte können Exkursionen bei Study-Abroad-Programmen haben? Welche Lerneffekte haben Exkursionen tatsächlich bei Study-Abroad-Programmen? Ziel dieser Masterarbeit ist es, die Lerneffekte von Exkursionen im Rahmen eines Study-Abroad-Programms theoretisch und empirisch zu untersuchen. Supervised cultural excursions are often included in the offerings of foreign language immersion study abroad programs. Such excursions have the potential to achieve a depth beyond sightseeing. Under certain conditions, excursions can foster linguistic and intercultural learning and skill acquisition in a setting that has advantages not only over the traditional classroom, but also over daily unsupervised immersion. These conclusions can be intuitively inferred, but have never been supported by empirical evidence. Therefore, the questions which guided this outcomes assessment research were: What are the potential learning effects of immersion program excursions? What are the actual learning effects of immersion program excursions? This thesis attempts to answer the first question with a literature review of immersion programs, their excursions, and holistic/action-based foreign language acquisition; and the second question with an empirical study of excursions offered by an immersion program in Germany.
