Integrating Bike-Ped Topics into University Transportation Courses June 20 - 21, 2019 (Portland, OR)
The tools you need to design active transportation coursework.
We've been teaching this workshop for a decade, helping university faculty adapt their transportation courses to incorporate multimodal concepts. We've taught over 80 professors from 42 universities in 32 different states, sharing best practices in active transportation across North America. Offered through Portland State University, this two-day course offers a holistic approach to integrating bicycle and pedestrian topics into transportation and engineering courses. Through field tours and classroom exercises, you'll gain an understanding of state-of-the art practice. Faculty leave with resources to broaden their curriculum and course design—including reading lists, sample homework, project assignments and more.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This workshop is and ideal primer for faculty teaching within an accredited planning or engineering program, with a focus on transportation, or Ph.D. candidate students completing their degree program in the next year and planning to teach transportation courses. Cost of workshop is $100 per participant. Learn more about the curriculum in the draft agenda(tentative and may be subject to change).
