Transportation and Communities 2018: Academy Edition ● September 13 - 14, 2018 at Portland State University
In honor of our 10-year anniversary, we’re trying something a little different. Instead of brief sessions that introduce you to a topic– we will be offering fifteen half-day workshops that focus on skill building and providing the tools to apply the latest research to practice. These will be hands-on, immersive learning experiences in a small classroom setting. Hosted by the Transportation Research and Education Center at Portland State University. Supported by our U.S. DOT grant-funded consortium: the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC).

⇨CLICK HERE TO REGISTER⇦ This event is a la carte, and pricing is per workshop. You may attend as few as one, or as many as four workshops. Questions? Contact us at asktrec@pdx.edu.  Let us know if you’re a student interested in volunteering, and we’ll be in touch later this summer.
  • Half-Day Workshop (general admission): $95
  • Half-Day Workshop (student rate / elected government officials rate): $50

Survey Design: Asking the Right Questions

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Transportation professionals often need to survey users to better plan, design, and engineer our system. But, we often don't get the answers we really need, either because we don't ask the right questions, the right people, or enough people. This workshop will cover the basics of designing and implementing an effective survey, whether it be via mail, on-line, or in person.

After this workshop you will have a better understanding of how to...
  • Plan and implement an effective survey to use in practice
  • Write survey questions to get the answers you need
  • Get a higher response rate
This half-day workshop is eligible for 3.5 hours of professional development credit through AICP (see our provider summary). We can provide an electronic attendance certificate for other types of certification maintenance.
