Guidelines for Post-Secondary Real Estate Education Development.
During 1975-76, 43 Texas community colleges offered real estate courses, enrolling a total of 15,739 students. The trend toward real estate professionalism has created a need for specialized programs; 35 Texas colleges currently offer or propose to offer associate of applied science degrees in real estate. The majority of colleges employ part-time instructors who lack opportunities to keep up with modern educational techniques. This manual, divided into nine sections, is a composite of essays, articles, outlines and survey and testing instruments which seek to provide guidelines for postsecondary real estate education development for instructors. After an introductory section, section two probes the role of advisory committees of local leaders in establishing quality programs and proposes committee guidelines and responsibilities. Section three deals with conducting feasibility studies for program development and needs analysis surveys. The fourth section treats real estate education in terms of course work, competency-based instruction, and curriculum workshops. The fifth section explores the learning environment, and the sixth teaching techniques. Sections seven and eight present methods and examples of program evaluations and follow-ups, respectively. The ninth section considers audio-visual aids, texts, and periodicals. Appendices present Texas Real Estate Research Center publications, license act provisions, and the 1976 statistical summary of state brokers and salesmen. (TR)
