OTREC-ED-10-01 By Lynn Weigand
eBook (PDF): $0.00
This project expanded an existing course to include these learning objectives: - learn principles of bicycle and pedestrian facility design - understand integration of bicycle and pedestrian... More > facilities within the right-of-way - understand basic transportation research and data collection methods - apply course content through project work The course focused on improving bicycle and pedestrian connects to the Portland State University campus. Teams of graduate and undergraduate students worked to develop a problem statement, identify stakeholders, recommend a public involvement process, develop evaluation criteria and alternative solutions, evaluate alternatives, select a preferred alternative, and create a grant application. The course received excellent reviews from the students, who found it useful to apply design and planning principles to a project. It provides a model for course expansion on related topics and can be shared and adapted for use elsewhere.< Less

The objective of this project was to develop a new trail planning curriculum and conduct a trail research project in the Portland metropolitan area. The curriculum was created for a community... More > service-based, University Capstone course at Portland State University, with Metro regional government as the community course partner. Project goals include: ● Expanded opportunities for undergraduate students to study trail design and planning for walking and bicycling; ● Practical application of knowledge to a planning project through research and data collection on trail use; ● Raising awareness of bicycle and pedestrian travel among students across disciplines; ● Fostering continuing involvement and interest in regional bicycle and pedestrian travel and trail development; ● Research on the amount and type of use of certain regional trails to demonstrate their value in the regional transportation network; and ● Creating a model for trail planning and research curriculum.< Less

eBook (PDF): $0.00
This project begins to address the need for more bicycle and pedestrian (b/p) curriculum for transportation faculty by 1) surveying planning and transportation faculty to determine existing and... More > desired courses and curriculum modules on b/p design and planning; and 2) expanding the opportunities for students to learn about b/p transportation by designing and testing new curriculum modules in transportation planning and engineering. The survey shows how b/p topics are covered in transportation planning and engineering courses. It also provides insight into faculty and student interest in these topics, and a data source for module and curriculum development. Piloting the curriculum modules demonstrated how b/p topics can be successfully integrated into existing courses. Student evaluations showed a low level of knowledge about basic elements of b/p facilities design and analysis, showing a need for more integration of these topics into transportation planning and engineering courses.< Less
