What Urban Professionals Have to Say

This course has shown me many different perspectives of cycling I did not consider before. It gives a practical and fresh view on the discipline and helps specially to grab the different perspectives individual cyclist might have on cycling and the city. The methods and exercise helped me to structure ideas I already had or developed through the course. I highly recommend the course to anyone, who wants to develop a more practical and diverse picture on the cyclist and cycling in the city.

I took the course User Experience for Inclusive Cycling in Cities to learn more about the different UX-design tools for cycling infrastructure design and include cyclists throughout the process as end users within their own local context. I fully recommend this course if you are interested in more human-oriented design processes!
Franco Jauregui Fung
Researcher on public transport, based in Frankfurt, Germany
Before taking User Experience for Inclusive Cycling in Cities, I had a lot of hunches about the importance of considering cycling experiences for urban planning and promotion. However, I struggled to understand how I could systematically capture experiences in a way that would be creditable and beneficial for myself, the organisations I worked for and for the traveling public. The course gave me the solid tools I was searching for and an understanding of their background and how to apply them. Even if you don't apply them directly, these tools are great to have in the back of your mind when considering cycling in your city as a policymaker, planner, advocate or just someone who likes to ride. I highly recommend this course.
