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!

Welcome 2009

Dear students

Welcome to the New Year!!! I hope you are looking forward to all the challenges that 2009 will bring. Just a few comments on the 2008 portfolios:

-Congratulations to those of you that passed-especially those with the distinctions.
- Those of you who need to re-register:better luck this time!

I bet you are wondering why those that passed manged to do so (in fact, we had 2 90% candidates!). Well, the answer is easy. Remember that you are sending us a Portfolio of EVIDENCE-that is the key. You need to provide proof of what you have been doing. just sending us a job description, CV and copies of the course certificates you have done is NOT adequate. That will not earn you more than 20%.

It is so important for you to check the learning outcomes/objectives and monitor that you are achieving them AND to include proof of these outcomes in your Portfolio. I think of a Portfolio as a "brag" book-where you showcase what you have achieved by providing proof.

Please also have a look at previous postings and listen to the podcast of Dr Groenewald.

I will chat to you here and remember that we will also meet on myUNISA-remember to register.

Have a wonderful January!
