IBPI Summer Workshops for Active Design
This summer we're hosting three workshops through our program, the Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation (IBPI).
These are small group (20 - 25), hands-on, multi-day workshops taught by local experts from the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT), Portland State University, Alta Planning + Design, Toole Design Group, Nelson\Nygaard, Washington County, and more.
A limited number of scholarships are available to help offset the costs of travel and registration. Scholarship applications will be accepted on a rolling basis for the June faculty workshop, so apply early! Scholarship applications for the two August workshops are due by Friday, April 6.
June 19–20, 2018 at Portland State University
This two-day course is designed to help transportation planning and engineering faculty integrate a holistic approach to bicycle and pedestrian topics in their courses. 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. The course will be a combination of classroom instruction and field visits by bike and foot to Portland’s "living laboratory".
Aug 13–17, 2018 at Portland State University
As communities have put bikeway plans into effect, we’ve learned what works and what doesn’t -- how to plan effectively, design correctly and make investments that get results. We’ve distilled those lessons into this course, in which pioneers and leading practitioners in the field will teach the fundamentals of bikeway planning and design through an intensive week of interactive classroom sessions, field tours, and design exercises.
Aug 19–21, 2018 at Portland State University
This three-day workshop offers insights and strategies to make the case for policymakers, inspire communities, and build a movement toward healthier, more active cities. You'll experience firsthand the design of active transportation programs – including a behind-the-scenes peek into Portland's Sunday Parkways, the city's premiere Open Streets initiative. We'll also delve into transportation demand management and programs that play a key role in helping more people to bike, walk, and use transit.
