June 22 - 23, 2016
Room 315, Engineering Building, Portland State University
Course Faculty:Christopher Monsere, Peter Koonce, Drusilla van Hengel, Mike Rose, Nick Falbo
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.
IBPI offers a generous travel scholarship of $500 per faculty member. You can submit your application by completing this online form.
