There is not a single professional background that the course is designed for. This is a choice made to reflect how decisions about the built environment of cities involve many diverse players. We anticipate that the course will be of interest to those with backgrounds in urban planning, urban design, transportation engineering, public health, community development and sustainability from the public, private and non-profit sectors. The Ontario Professional Planners Institute and the Ontario Association of Architects have both endorsed the course as a professional development opportunity.
After the course, you’ll have developed skills in:
The course instructors are Car Martin and Mikey Bennington. Mikey Bennington is a health promoter with over 5 years experience in research and community engagement related to active transportation. Car Martin is an independent consultant who works in the field of architecture and urban design with a focus on participation and collaboration. Both Car and Mikey were part of TCAT’s Active Neighbourhoods Canada team and led participatory planning projects in communities across Ontario.
Students will benefit from having some experience with planning, design or public health. However, the course is structured so that students can tailor their learning goals in relation to the content. This means that there will be great opportunities to learn for both those with years of experience and those looking to learn more about participation in the planning of active transportation projects.
Our intention is to offer the course again. As of now, we cannot guarantee that it will be on offer next year.
