This "Student Workbook" contains 24 lessons of resource material that is intended for use in university courses on bicycle and pedestrian transportation. The lessons span a wide range of topics including an introduction to bicycling and walking issues, planning and designing for bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and supporting elements and programs. This is the second edition of the "Student Workbook"; the first edition was published as Report No. FHWA-RD-99-198. Lesson-based slideshows (scripted slideshows for all 24 lessons) and an overview lecture (a scripted slideshow for a one- or two-lecture overview in existing undergraduate or graduate transportation courses) are also available to assist in course development and delivery. The key learning outcomes in the course material are as follows: (1) Students should recognize the legitimacy of the bicycle and pedestrian modes in a balanced transportation system; (2) Students should understand how policy, planning, and engineering practices can be improved to create a more balanced transportation system; and (3) Students should be familiar with basic policies, practices, tools, and design principles and know how to use them to create bicycle and pedestrian-friendly communities. Individual lessons contain references and additional resources. References and additional resources are provided at the end of each lesson. (Contains 262 figures and 35 tables.)
