IBPI 2015 Summer Workshops
The Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation (IBPI) offers three exciting professional development courses each summer, invaluable for faculty and practitioners who work with bicycle and pedestrian topics.
Comprehensive Bikeway Design 1.0, offered in July, covers the fundamentals of bikeway planning and design through an intensive week of interactive classroom sessions and field tours. It offers skills, practical first steps and diverse perspectives to help create a bike plan or secure funding for the next big project in your community.
Comprehensive Bikeway Design 2.0 in August offers training on enhancing and making improvements to bicycle networks that already exist. This course is focused more on the engineering aspects of bikeway planning.
Integrating Bike-Ped Topics into University Transportation Courses is our faculty workshop, offered in June. This two-day workshop fosters a holistic approach to teaching transportation engineering and planning by building bicycle and pedestrian design into the curriculum.
As a major component of all three courses, daily field tours will explore Portland and the surrounding area's “living laboratory” of bicycle and pedestrian facilities to provide first-hand experience of projects discussed in the classroom.
