Teaching an introductory transportation engineering course to undergraduate students can present many challenges. Since such courses are typically required for all civil engineering undergraduates, students in the course collectively possess a varied range of interest in transportation. For many students, this will be the only transportation course ever taken. For others, this course will provide the foundation for future courses and career opportunities. Further, because this course is typically taught at the junior level, students may be more difficult to engage compared to those in senior level courses. In light of these challenges, it is important to employ innovative techniques to enhance student learning and provide effective engagement. This webinar will present instructional strategies to effectively engage students in an introductory transportation engineering university course. This will include a series of in-class activities that can be introduced in various transportation courses.
