Abstract

Between 2013 and 2015 I scoped, designed and delivered a new Masters Level (L7) Unit in Infrastructure Asset Management as an option for the Department of Civil Engineering. Asset Management is a relatively new profession with many career opportunities for graduates. Here I use the Gibbs framework to reflect on and evaluate the overall approach to design, student recruitment, delivery and feedback from the first three years of running the Unit. I also critique the use of co-creation with students in Unit design working with four final year students, the impact of Technology Enhanced Learning, and the Unit’s linkage to the professional competencies required by the Institute of Asset Management. I conclude the case study with a summary of ‘what will I do differently next time’ in line with Gibbs’ model.
