Khan, Osama. "Conceptual Imagery for developing Real state Finance Modules." In 1st ERES EDUCATION SEMINAR. ERES: Education Seminar. Alicante, Spain: The University of Alicante, 2005. The presentation depicts conceptual imagery to visualize the process of developing real estate finance modules for undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in a business school setting. Based on the teaching experience at the Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge, the presenter has drawn two conceptual models on developing modules in real estate finance for BSc in Business Management, MSc, and MBA students at the school of Management, University of Surrey. Recent researches in Education promote this idea of conceptual visualization for module and programme development. The presentation starts with the presenterís experiences at Cambridge and prospects at Surrey in real estate finance modules and develops the conceptual imagery to depict the dynamics in real estate module development. Various critical aspects influencing a module in real estate finance have been integrated in these conceptual mages, which will encourage debate and discussion for better pedagogy in real estate.
Kolbre, Ene, and Signe Li, iv. "Current practices and evolutionary trends of real estate education in a business school environment in Estonia." In 1st ERES EDUCATION SEMINAR. ERES: Education Seminar. Alicante, Spain: The University of Alicante, 2005. In Estonia university-based real estate education in a business school environment started in the middle of 1990ies, together with the formation and development of real estate market, when universities began to include real estate related courses into their business administration curricula. Subsequent development of real estate education was connected on the one hand with the reforms in the field of higher education and on the other hand with the development of professional standards and the launch of certification of real estate related professions. At present the schools of economics and business administration of most universities have real estate related courses in their curricula ñ at the levels of diploma, bachelorís and masterís degree studies. Prevalent courses are real estate economics, real estate finance, real estate appraisal and real estate marketing. However, there are only a few real estate related curricula, e.g. the real estate management curriculum in Tallinn University of Technology. In developing courses in the schools of economics and business administration primarily the necessity for qualified real estate appraisers, - brokers and ñmanagers has been kept in mind. Consequently the universities have participated in working out the professional standards of the above-named professions, in synchronizing professional requirements in an international level and in carrying out professional qualification exams, in co-operation with the professional associations. The further directions of developing real estate education are the refinement of the methodical side of existing courses, the development of real estate courses at the doctoral level and the participation in international co-operation networks, in order to offer a wider scale of opportunities in choosing courses to students who decide to specialize in real estate field.

Schermer, Klaas, and Erik Schutte. "Educating principles for real estate studies." In 1st ERES EDUCATION SEMINAR. ERES: Education Seminar. Alicante, Spain: The University of Alicante, 2005. Educating for real estate professions needs a leading principle to know what subject should be taught. One approach is: a list of all things students should know and skills to master. It is not difficult to make such a list: everybody knows that a professional should know the essentials of economics, law, construction, negotiation skills, etc. A problem arises, if you try to specify such a list: then many people argue that in a particular case additional knowledge and skills are absolutely necessary and the list grows endlessly. Another approach is: specify competences of professional needs, based on a definition of real estate practice. Subjects and skills are then derived from those competences. This last approach is used by RICS and in adapted version used by Hanzehogeschool Groningen. We will show you the details and add an example. We are very interested to hear how other schools decide about subjects to teach!

Viitanen, Kauko, and Anna-Liisa Lindholm. "Real Estate Programme at Helsinki University of Technology." In 1st ERES EDUCATION SEMINAR. ERES: Education Seminar. Alicante, Spain: The University of Alicante, 2005. The real estate programme at the Helsinki University of Technology (TKK) has undergone major changes during the past decades. Internationalisation, change of values in society, employment, new professional tasks, occupational demands and relations between science and profession have all influenced to the demand to modify the real estate education. In order to respond to these changes the programme has been developed from the traditional surveyor education to a multidiscipline programme, which produces multi-skilled real estate professionals and operates in tight co-operation with professional bodies and companies. The aim of this presentation is to give an overview of how the real estate programmes (M.Sc. and B.Sc.) have been developed to respond to the changes in the professional field. By identifying key issues, experiences and challenges in the curriculum development we can provide knowledge and some practical tips for other real estate educators. At the end the gained benefits of the curriculum development and some future challenges are discussed.

Sayce, Sarah, Amanda Lewis, and Louise Ellison. "The challenge of sustainability to real estate education: what employers will require." In 1st ERES EDUCATION SEMINAR. ERES: Education Seminar. Alicante, Spain: The University of Alicante, 2005. The developing sustainability agenda is generating global demand for professionals skilled in sustainability and related subjects including corporate responsibility and ethical investment. The Higher Education Funding Council for England recently published a policy aimed at increasing graduatesí sustainability skills capability (HEFCE, 2005). The RICS too now has a policy that aims to include sustainability in the curriculum (RICS, 2005). However, as yet, sustainability is addressed in a relatively limited and piecemeal way within higher education curricula (Dawe et al. 2003; Martin and Jucker, 2004). Given the major impact buildings have on the environmental, economic and social context of society, the authors argue that real estate educators have a particular need to appropriately equip their graduates in this field. The presentation will outline the response of the authorsí own organisation. It will also reflect on the role Universities need to play, better to ensure that employers are provided with the graduates they now require. It will conclude with recommendations for the future development of real estate curricula.

Jayne, Michael. "The future for graduate and post raduate entry routes." In 1st ERES EDUCATION SEMINAR. ERES: Education Seminar. Alicante, Spain: The University of Alicante, 2005. En the UK a first degree is the predominant real estate qualification route. Recent years have seen an apparent shift to postgraduate entry, especially conversion courses. This may have been facilitated by the Governmentís drive to increase participation in University education which may have resulted in increased numbers of graduates with non cognate, non vocational first degrees. Some real estate employers have also been active in encouraging post graduate into employment. The issues raised are the relative merits of these entry routes. Are they producing distinctly different property professionals?. If so, what are the qualities?. Can/should their employment and education by segmented and would segmentation be useful?. Might the demand for undergraduate education experience a decline in demand or a (downward?) shift to a more technical competence (for example Technical membership of the RICS?. What are the pan European implications and future trends likely to be?
Jayne, Michael. "The merits of sandwich degrees in comparison with post-graduate conversion routes." In 1st ERES EDUCATION SEMINAR. ERES: Education Seminar. Alicante, Spain: The University of Alicante, 2005. UK real estate education has a tradition of full time sandwich and non-sandwich degree entry. Recently, there has been a growth in full time and part-time post graduate conversion routes. Both the full time sandwich degree and full time first degree-plus-postgraduate conversion routes take four years. Do these routes produce distinctly different property professionals?. Might a yearís work experience via a structured placement learning vehicle enhance the studentís educational experience serve as a proxy route for some, or all of the learning outcomes of a post graduate conversion route?. Are they in competition?. How might these entry routes develop in the future?. Is there likely to be a continued demand for sandwich degrees post graduate conversion routes?. Part of the presentation would include an analysis of Nottingham Trent Universityís experiences of the role of placement in the studentís educational development.
Anikeef, Mike. "University Real Estate Education: Irrelevant and Worthless in Europe and the US?" In 1st ERES EDUCATION SEMINAR. ERES: Education Seminar. Alicante, Spain: The University of Alicante, 2005. Real estate educators should be disturbed by the findings in a 2003 report on ìHuman Capitalî in the European real estate industry. The Equinox Partners/Urban Land Institute report found that formal real estate education at the undergraduate and to a greater extent the graduate level is considered irrelevant or of insufficient value to the major firms in the industry. Similar to their U.S. counterparts, European respondents place relatively low value on academic training in property. óthe lowest ranked of 12 skills and attributes. Consistent with the low value respondents place on formal education, they also believe that changes or expansion of university curricula is less important than other factors in attracting, developing and retaining the next generation of property professionals. Only about 27 per cent of the real estate organizations new hires were recent graduates of property or MBA programs. Yet, 60 per cent of all the respondents hired a graduate or an undergraduate in the past year. A closer look at the data and the analysis suggests that the findings may a function of the size of firm and the nature of the respondents. Property consultants and large firms appear to be more favorably disposed to hiring real estate graduates than smaller firms.
Kaklauskas, Arturas, and E. K. Zavadskas. "Web-based Intelligent Testing and Computer Learning Systems in Lithuania." In 1st ERES EDUCATION SEMINAR. ERES: Education Seminar. Alicante, Spain: The University of Alicante, 2005. "The Department of Construction Economics and Property Management (CEPM) at Vilnius Gediminas Technical University is committed to developing Web-based Intelligent Testing Systems and Web-based Computer Learning Systems for real-world industrial applications in sectors such as urban planning, construction, real estate, facilities management, international trade, ethics, etc. Since 1999 the distance learning Master's degree studies in ""Real Estate Management"" has been introduced into CEPM department and the Master's degree studies in ""Construction Economics"" from 2000, and e-learning Master's degree studies in ""Internet Technologies and Real Estate Management"" have been introduced in 2003. There are currently 221 Master's degree students in above three e-learning programmes. For example, the intelligent testing system developed by CEPM allows assessment of knowledge not only by the correct/incorrect answer, but also takes into account the time taken for a student to answer a question and the doubts appeared, the complex parameters, etc. The developed system provides support to the student by presenting explanations of the answers and the links to certain literature. It provides statistical analysis on knowledge acquirement depending on the gender of the student and the type of studies the student is involved in ñ distance or full-time. For the teacher the system is also useful because it helps to evaluate the correctness of a question formulation, difficulty of a question and directions for refinement of a test or a model, etc. "
