Mr. Bourne stated that members of the New Programmes Committee
were of the opinion that proposals for new programmes submitted to
Senate for approval had often not been brought before Senate as

had found that Faculties or other groups had taken initial steps
to implement proposals, evidently acting on the assumption that
Senate would approve them. 5332

Mr.  O'Brien    ) students  some teaching  experience en a

transcript.
It was suggested that there was a danger of exposing undergraduate
students to ineffective teaching by those graduate students who lacked
either ability or interest in this  activity.     It was  also felt  that
there were budgetary implications as students who were expected to
teach would also expect some remuneration.
