Effects of I.T.A. on "The Whole Student"

Effects of I.T.A. on "The Whole Student"

By 1973 after the first year of I.T.A. at Vic, there was a definite impression that campus life had declined and socially and politically was stagnating.

In July 1973, the Professional Board showing some recognition at least of the situation asked the Faculties to consider student rep and SRC claims "that the work programmes being required of students by present courses and methods of assessment have become unduly onerous and destructive of both effective learning and joy [sic] in university life". During 1973 and 1974 various faculty committee and student welfare reports began to measure the effect on the whole student social and academic of ITA and the degree changes, in particular in workloads, pressure and extra curricular activities.
