Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning and Teaching Methods
The module is taught thematically with each lecture providing an opportunity for the student to learn about key issues underlying the development of property management. Lectures begin by setting out the roles and responsibilities of the property manager and models of property management available to organise and administer property management. Each lecture is supported with case study material drawn from the experiences of property management in the public and corporate sectors. The tutorials are used to reflect on the application of property asset management techniques. The lectures and tutorials cover LO’s (1-6)

Employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
The module shall assess the standards of communication, nous/commonsense and creativity demonstrated in answering the question(s) set. The activities will facilitate the development of key skills such as communication, reflective learning and critical thinking. Scholarship skills are developed through the research necessary for completion of the reports together with adopting an appropriate writing style, referencing and the synthesis of information from a variety of sources. Students are encouraged to reflect on what they have learned in the module, the feedback they have received, and apply it for their personal development.

Research-teaching Linkages
The essay assessment draws from literature found in text books and journal articles on
property management and provides an opportunity for them to use research material of this type.

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 where you will be encouraged to 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:
Assessment 1 (LOs 1-6) is a coursework that takes the form of a research-based briefing document and professional report, designed to evaluate the student’s understanding of property asset management and knowledge of the techniques available. This is designed to give the students formative feedback that can be applied to other learning situations. Assessment 2 is a formal examination of 3 hours duration (learning outcomes 1-6).
