I came up with the following phrases to start the sentence, but I am not sure which one is proper.

Now it seems, that ...

As I see it now, ...

As now I see it, ...

To see it now, ...

As for now, ...

As of now, ...

My sentence is:

INSERT HERE the “learning-by-doing" philosophy did play an important role in consolidating my undergraduate knowledge.

The context of this sentence is that I did not realize the importance of the philosophy before, but finally, I do now when I look back.

I'm not sure if any of those is proper to fit the context; if not, please suggest better ones. Thanks!!

p.s. I am doing some formal writing, so I would like to make sure the usage of words is both proper and formal.

Of those you suggested, the only one that really works is "As I see it now, ..."

However, another option would be something like this:

Looking back now, the “learning-by-doing" philosophy did play an important role in consolidating my undergraduate knowledge.

or

In hindsight, the “learning-by-doing" philosophy did play an important role in consolidating my undergraduate knowledge.

  • +1 for the pragmatic marker (showing [temporal] point of view) 'In hindsight', which I'd suggest. Perhaps 'heuristic approach' for ' "learning-by-doing" philosophy'? – Edwin Ashworth Dec 11 '15 at 7:49
