Students’ Perception
• What had been learnt through experience has
already been implemented in my practice
• The portfolio approach was initially a threat …. I
soon adapted to reflecting …. and documenting
• The portfolio forced me to think about my time
management and organising myself
23
• This is a rich experience
• This assignment is, according to my husband, the
only proper assignment I have ever done so far in
all my years of study
• The portfolio assessment suited me fine since I am
more driven by the process of learning
24
• The course challenged, motivated and
encouraged every sphere of my life
• This is lifelong learning
25
• I am pleased to say that … I could clearly see
an increase in my learners’ results. All the
students passed Accounting – compared to
67% the previous year … It was also in the
reflection phase where I have discovered the
true, practical meaning of self-regulated
learning – I could see it in my professional
development, and saw it in my students’
work, self-motivation and positive attitude …
I can confidently say that the students found
Accounting enjoyable!
26
• Through my work in this year long learning
experience I have gained a life time of potentially
life long learning development. If I were asked to
account for one specific aspect of this
experience that was perhaps most beneficial in
the way it has come to underpin my practice and
transform it, I would have to pinpoint reflective
practice.
