About the module

Public Managament Practice 3 (PMP301P) is a compulsory module in the third year for the National Diploma in Public Management. It is more popularly known as Work Integrated Learning or Experiential Learning. For the purpose of this subject, we will make use of Work Integrated Learning (WIL) when we refer to aspects relating to Public Management Practice. Often, students do not know what is expected of them and their supervisors in the workplace. This blog will share some ideas, thoughts and will almost be like a "911" if you have any questions or concerns.

I am looking forward to take this journey with you!

A whole new year

Good day all and welcome to 2012

As the song lyrics state "a whole new world", it is my hope that you will experience a whole new dimension to your studies. The purpose of this module is to provide you with an opportunity to practically experience the National Diploma in Public Management. In this module, via the learning outcomes, you will be assessed on what you have learnt during your years of study. The module comprises of various elements that was in all of your previous modules-from your first, second and third years of study.

It is important for you to work through all of the learning outcomes and objectives. The rubric will be used to grade your portfolio. I cannot state enough the importance of working through the Tutorial letter 101 as well as the guide as it contains essential information.

All students will in the end on the date communicated in the Tutorial letter 101 submit a logbook and the portfolio. In the logbook you will record the activities (not your supervisor) and in the portfolio you will provide the evidence of the activities stated in the logbook.

You will be guided through this process via myUnisa, this blog as well as satellite broadcasting. Details regarding the satellite sessions will be communicated in due course.

Wishing you a wonderful experience!
