Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning and Teaching Methods (including their alignment with learning outcomes
The module is taught thematically with each lecture providing an opportunity for the student to learn about key issues underlying the development of contemporary planning. The lectures begin by setting out the origins of the Urban Renaissance and move on to the generics of their partnership approach to planning and development (Learning Outcome 1, 2, & 3). Each lecture uses case study material drawn from the experiences of modern city planning under the partnering frameworks for building better cities, community planning and sustainable development. The tutorials reflect on the application of such planning and development instruments and policy underpinning sustainable urban regeneration (Learning Outcome 4, 5 & 6).

Formative Assessment:
Formative Assessment
The provision of formative feedback is a key component of the LTA approach underpinning this module. Formative feedback opportunities are built into each tutorial so students can engage with and reflect upon module themes via a series of different learning tasks. These provide opportunities for the module tutor to help with your understanding and interpretation of module topics. This formative feedback is delivered in class time in response to student contributions both individually and collectively. Formative feedback arises via the discussion and analysis of tutorial questions, practical examples/cases and associated reflection on a range of learning tasks.

Summative Assessment:
are set for weeks 8 and supported by tutorial classes designed to give the students an opportunity to plan their work, receive constructive criticism and act upon the comments received. The assessment shall address LOs 1-5. The assessment draws on literature found in textbooks and journal articles planning and development. The final assessment shall take the form of an Exam covering LOs 1-6.
