The accelerated growth of digitisation in real estate operations and practice has led to the emergence of a contemporary real estate specialist area commonly referred to as “PropTech”. Despite the tremendous growth in the deployment of digital technologies and IT systems to solve real estate problems, there has been a disproportionate growth in scholarly work, particularly in PropTech education. The higher educational system is a major real estate education vehicle; therefore, integrating PropTech in real estate higher education has the potential to further transform the PropTech space. This creates real estate professionals with adequate knowledge, skills and behaviours through exposure to PropTech which can then be applied in practice. There is currently no evidence-base through which PropTech can be integrated in the real estate higher education curriculum. Additionally, there is no PropTech pedagogical and practical framework that can guide educators to provide teaching and learning support to real estate students in higher education. Creating a PropTech education integration plan and pedagogical framework has the potential to provide real estate students with the requisite knowledge and skills required to get actively involved in PropTech and to develop tools to improve the various real estate operational and market inefficiencies. This research, therefore, develops a framework through which PropTech, its underlying mechanism and other real estate innovations can be efficiently and effectively integrated in real estate higher education curriculum. Furthermore, the research provides relevant pedagogical and practical considerations that can support the integration plan
