Overview

COURSE OVERVIEW

Hosted every summer since 2012, this two-day course is designed to help transportation planning and engineering faculty integrate bicycle and pedestrian topics into their courses. We focus on a holistic approach to teaching transportation engineering and planning by integrating design for bicycles and pedestrians. You'll gain an understanding of state-of-the art practice as well obtain learning materials and resources to broaden your curriculum and 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. An option to purchase a daily bike rental is available upon registering for the workshop. If you want an extended bicycle rental, you can reserve online at the PSU Bike Hub.
