The module builds on the students’ existing knowledge and understanding of development but builds on it with application to a true-to life case study experience in which students have to prepare a development appraisal report but also reflect upon their own professional practice in doing so.
The topics covered will include a module introduction, definitions, the development and appraisal process, reporting, financial and non-financial appraisal, traditional and contemporary development appraisal and related issues of professional practice including problem solving and personal reflection and self-development.
To achieve credit for this module, students must be able to:
- Prepare a development appraisal report to an appropriate professional standard.
- Apply both traditional and contemporary analytical and valuation skills to both financial and non-financial appraisal.
- Evidence problem solving skills through reasoned recommendations and justification for them.
- Critically reflect upon their own professional practice in preparing the case study
