About

Together we examine the impacts of history, policy, infrastructure, planning, and culture within the context of urban cycling in the Netherlands. Next to this, the Planning the Cycling City programme at the University of Amsterdam invites students to bring and share their personal views and experiences on cycling cities. 

Overview

Key facts:

  • The Planning the Cycling City course at the University of Amsterdam follows a flipped classroom approach in which Amsterdam is both a story board and a lab. Experience and experiential learning are key components of the course. Students are encouraged to independently explore and examine the city through the lens of the learning material; to get inspiration, to struggle with concepts or to “translate lessons" to their local context.
  • The course includes intimate discussions with the absolute leaders in fields ranging from sociology to transport engineering, and including influential academics and practitioners. To develop a rich understanding of a cycling city students engage in fieldwork, excursions, small group discussions and course projects. Seminal and recent contributions to the relevant literature are discussed throughout the course.

Programme Structure

  • The programme will cover topics as diverse as urban cycling (historical and current trends), power relations in policy, strategic planning at different scales, land use, streams and wayfinding, bicycle culture and effects, data collection and measurement, and marketing as a policy instrument.
