Integrating Bike-Ped Topics into University Transportation Courses

Integrating Bike-Ped Topics into University Transportation Courses

July 12-13, 2017
Room 315, Engineering Building, Portland State University
Course Faculty: TBA. Last year's faculty were Christopher Monsere, Peter KoonceDrusilla van Hengel, Mike Rose, Nick Falbo


Course Overview

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.

Course Format: 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. An option to purchase a daily bike rental is available upon registering for the workshop. If you want an extended bicycle rentail, you can reserve online at the PSU Bike Hub.

Registration: The fee for this professional development course is $70. The fee includes morning coffee, snacks, lunch, and course materials. The fee does not include travel, lodging or other meals while in Portland. Visit our Accommodations page for more information about lodging options in the PSU-campus area.

Travel Scholarships are available for eligible faculty and Ph.D. candidate students

IBPI offers a travel scholarship of $500 to faculty members or Ph.D. candidate students who are committed to attending the workshop. The scholarship is distributed as a lump-sum payment, which is disbursed after the completion of the workshop. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, up to a maximum of 15 recipients so we encourage you to apply early. You can submit your application by completing this online form.

If you are selected to receive a scholarship, you will need to pay the $70 registration fee. If you do not need travel assistance and therefore are not applying for a scholarship, you can proceed to register for the workshop by visiting our registration page.

Who Should Attend:
 Participants should be instructors teaching within an accredited planning or engineering program, with a focus on transportation, or Ph.D. candidate students completing your degree program within 12 months of the workshop date and planning to teach transportation courses. 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.
