Event description


Fall 2019 California Community Colleges

Real Estate Education Center Conference

The Real Estate Education Center promotes quality real estate education in the California Community Colleges. We work with faculty to provide professional development opportunities to support quality instruction and student success.


The CCCREEC conference aims to provide support for California Community Colleges real estate and appraisal faculty in three areas: real estate regulation and licensing, real estate industry and professional practice, and pedagogy and student success. You can expect to participate in presentations on each of these topics throughout the day.

We aim to meet the needs of full-time and part-time faculty and bring together groups of people to learn together for engaging, one-day conferences focused on real estate education. Our conferences also include valuable information for real estate professionals and those interested in teaching at the California Community Colleges. Together, we represent a vibrant coalition of real estate professionals, instructors, administrators, employers, students, and entrepreneurs coming together to increase the professionalism and practice of real estate.

Do you know about Career Development & College Preparation curriculum? Have you heard about CDCP, but you’re not sure how it applies to your real estate program? This presentation will introduce the topic of non-credit CDCP curriculum for real estate courses and ways to expand your real estate program to a new group of students. Join in the discussion, and you’ll leave with practical ways to get more information.

1:45pm - 2:30pm - Increasing Student Retention & Success - Institute for Evidence Based Change
Non-academic supports have been shown to increase student in-class retention and success. Learn how college faculty can easily employ strategies that increase student engagement in class, whether face-to-face or online. These strategies have also been shown to increase faculty satisfaction. This workshop is a fun, fast-paced introduction to specific techniques that will be practiced in the session.

2:30pm - 2:30pm - Closing Remarks - Emily Maynard

2:30pm-4:00pm - Improving Student Success in Online Classes through Canvas - If you haven’t taught with Canvas or consider yourself an expert, join us for the opportunity to improve your Canvas skills for student success! Bring a class to get individual support for improving your knowledge and skills in order to improve student success. This post-conference workshop is for California Community Colleges real estate faculty.


Join your California community college real estate faculty colleagues on Thursday, April 25th, from 5:30pm-7:00pm for a no-host reception and networking time the night before the conference in the lounge at Rusty Pelican, Newport Beach.

Valet parking is available for $6, but we encourage you to use a taxi or ride-share transportation service if you will be consuming alcohol.

Please ask for the upstairs lounge area. A limited menu is available in the lounge, so if you plan to stay for dinner, please make your own reservations.

Previous conference surveys indicated that real estate faculty want more time to connect and work together on advancing real estate education in casual settings, so we hope this additional pre-conference event will help facilitate relationship-building and positive conversations about successful real estate education!
