This diploma thesis deals with the demographic development of Austria and the resulting socio-political implications. Furthermore, a learning module for geography and economics at the example of Austria has been produced. The aim of this paper is to exemplify how the development of the Austrian population by number and structure, and their impact on society, can be taught with the aid of learning at stations. It is intended to give the students a simple way to achieve the highest possible learning experience. When all stations have been completed the students should have the technical knowledge of demography in general and also learned something for life. They should realize and understand the impact of demographic development has on each person and especially to oneself. The first chapter of this paper discusses the development of the Austrian population on the basis of population, birth rate, mortality rate, life expectancy, migration rate, structure, and a look at the future population growth. In the second chapter certain life situations are analyzed under consideration of the demographic development, such as family policy, immigration policy, pension policy and the status of women. In the third chapter the didactic framework is clarified, including the actual work on the stations. More than that, the use of open education gets justified. In the final chapter the learning module is explained. The main focus is on the various stations and includes information sheets as well as work sheets and their answer keys.
