Integration of pedestrian and bicycle concepts into transportation classes is essential in creating sustainable, livable communities. PBIC has updated the Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation Short Series, which is designed to augment undergraduate courses in basic civil engineering and/or transportation planning. The course materials now include up-to-date presentation slides for three 50-minute lectures, four assignments, and a reading/resource list. Webinar speakers will discuss why entry-level transportation professionals need experience planning and designing for all modes and how the updated course materials may be used and adapted for different university courses.

Presenters include:

  • Mike Flynn, Director of Active Transportation, Sam Schwartz Engineering
  • Carl Sundstrom, Engineering Research Associate, UNC Highway Safety Research Center
  • Dr. Kari E. Watkins, P.E., Assistant Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Georgia Tech
  • Dr. Jeff LaMondia, Assistant Professor, Civil Engineering, Auburn University

Presentations will be followed by a question and answer session with the panelists.

PBIC offers free, public Webinars approximately every month. To register for upcoming Webinars and to access archived presentations, please visit www.pedbikeinfo.org/webinars.
