Presentation Skills & Teaching Methods IDW
ADRE Requirement of All Instructors
The ADRE requires that all real estate instructors attend a 3-hour IDW within the twenty-four month period prior to application as a new instructor or renewal of an instructor’s application.
The purpose of this IDW is to assist instructors in developing better classroom presentation skills and teaching methods in order to enhance the learning for their students. Using the Generally Accepted Principles of Education (GAPE) as adopted by the Real Estate Educators Association as a foundation, this IDW will strive to provide instructors with ideas, tools and methods that will enable them to develop better courses, become better presenters and teachers, and most importantly, engage all students in ways that improve the chance that real learning is taking place.
