Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation: Education and Training

TREC Web - BikePed Banner.png

Offered through our long-standing program, the Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation (IBPI), we convene Portland's leading experts to teach multi-day workshops for active transportation professionals looking to hit the ground running (or cycling!) as they design multimodal options in their communities. We've been teaching these essential design skills for over a decade now, and have tutored over 550 professionals, from 34 states and 5 countries with many success stories.

These intensive, immersive learning opportunities serve as a valuable source of knowledge, connections, and inspiration to each cohort. Email us at asktrec@pdx.edu for questions.

Faculty Workshop: Integrating Bike-Ped Topics into University Transportation Courses (July 16 - 17, 2020)

Note: We are still working through the logistics of the 2020 faculty workshop. We are hopeful that we may be able to adapt it to an online format, but this is not yet confirmed. 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.

Cancelled: Comprehensive Bikeway Design (August 24 - 28, 2020)

We have been monitoring developments here in Portland and at Portland State University with regards to COVID-19, and regrettably we are cancelling this workshop. Due to significant impacts on campus classroom access, needs for social distancing, and travelling, we felt that this was the right choice. We have hosted this workshop every year for a decade, and while we did not want to miss a year - transitioning it online would not meet our goals for experiential learning.
