The South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) Act of 1995 highlights the fact that the nature of learning as well as traditional teaching practices in South Africa necessitates a paradigm shift. Some of the implications of the transitional teaching process for higher education seem to be embodied in the concept of a "learning society". Bellis (1998:1) uses this expression to describe the consequences for individuals involved in a knowledge-driven and knowledge-dependent society where knowledge has become a key factor in shaping the structures and dynamics of their daily lives. Therefore it indicates a decisive transformation from the kind of society where formal learning occurred in a one-off situation to a society in which one has to re-orientate and re-school oneself repeatedly.
