DUT Registration

Eligibility

The DUT is open to all full and part-time faculty members and contract instructors, and to all registered full and part-time graduate students for the cost of $350.00.  Non-UNB persons wishing to participate in the course will be required to pay $665.00 (based on UNB course fees).  Since enrolment is limited, graduate students, new faculty and contract instructors will be given first preference.

The program is administered by the Diploma in University Coordinator for Teaching and Learning Services.

Workshops and evening sessions are facilitated by the Diploma in University Coordinator and other faculty members who provide expertise in various areas of teaching scholarship.

Program Cost

A program fee of $350 is paid by each UNB participant at the time of registration.  Non UNB people are welcome to register but will pay the equivalent of a course fee of $665. Payment methods include cash, cheque and debit.  A receipt will be given at time of payment.
