Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning and teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
LO 1-4 Each activity uses a wide variety of audio-visual resources, group discussion, case analysis to develop student engagement. Directed study focuses on development of the concepts covered in the reading materials.

Embedding of employability/PDP/ scholarship skills
LO1-4 Students take part in development exercises so as to better understand their personal skills and attributes and how to develop them to increase their employability. Their PDP is considered an integral part of this development as they are encouraged to reflect on what they have learned in the module and apply it to their personal situation. Learning outcomes match requirements of RICS.

Research/teaching linkages
At several points during the module the students are introduced to relevant research to underpin their learning. Students are also expected to undertake personal research for the assessments, which builds their research skills.

Formative Assessment:
Assessment 1 is a piece of continuous assessment (coursework) and provides the opportunity to give students formative feedback on their progress :This will assess the knowledge and competence of the student on LOs 1,2,3 and 4.

Summative Assessment:
Assessment 2 is an examination and forms the summative aspects of the learning process. This will serve to assess the competence and knowledge of the student on LOs 1,2,3 and 4.
