Qualification Certificate
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary This graduate level programme will explore urban cycling from a Dutch perspective, both historical and current, and provide students with a host of skills on how to develop and foster cycling cities a
Course description 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 programme invites students to bring and share their personal views and experiences on cycling cities. As the world's cycling capital, Amsterdam offers a premier environment for engaging with all of this. This course 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.
