This course is designed to help transportation planning and engineering faculty integrate bicycle and pedestrian topics into their courses. The course focuses on a holistic approach to teaching transportation engineering and planning by integrating design for bicycles and pedestrians. In addition, the course provides an understanding of state-of-the art practice. Participants will receive learning materials to broaden their curriculum and provide resources for course design.
To keep the workshop interactive, walking and bicycling tours are incorporated in order for participants to experience first-hand the innovative design solutions used in Portland and other U.S. cities that encourage active transportation.
The course will be a combination of classroom instruction and field visits by bike and foot to Portland’s “living laboratory”. The bicycle tour will be about 8 miles with some mild elevation and done at a moderate pace.
The fee for this professional development course is $100. The fee includes morning coffee, snacks, lunch, course materials and standard bike rental. The fee does not include travel, lodging or other meals while in Portland.
Who Should Attend:
Participation is limited to 15 faculty members to allow for discussion and interaction among participants. Participants should be instructors teaching within an accredited planning or engineering program, with a focus on transportation. We will follow up with participants to find out how they integrated the course information into their teaching.
Continuing Education Credits: This two-day workshop is eligible for approximately 13 hours of training which equals to 13 CMs or 13 PDHs. IBPI applies to the AICP for Certification Maintenance credit for each course. We will provide an attendance certificate to those who document their professional development hours.
