The Landscape of the Real Estate Classroom: What You Need to Know to Be an Effective Teacher Today
Tilton, Wendy
Online Submission
The generational and cultural landscape of the real estate classroom is changing. These changes will affect the way professionals seek out and engage in education. In the first half of 2006, the Real Estate Educators Association (REEA) conducted a survey of volunteer members' classrooms to provide a snapshot of the current demographic setting. The results confirmed that Gen X'ers and Millenials are replacing Baby Boomers in the classroom. It also showed that the increasing minority population is becoming evidentiary in real estate education programs. New approaches to meet the needs of multi-generational and multi-cultural students will be needed. Schools, programs and instructors should review classroom behavior and course content to eliminate generational and cultural bias to better serve the increasingly emergent diverse community of real estate professionals. Appendices include: (1) Initial Email; (2) Survey; and (3) Email with Instructions. (Contains 13 figures and 16 tables.) [This study was sponsored by the Real Estate Educators Association (REEA).]
