Curriculum Development

USF has offered a graduate-level course in public transportation on an annual or semi-annual basis. A single course does not have adequate time to address myriad contemporary issues or provide design or planning experiences for the students. 

A second course would offer the opportunity for a more in-depth look at key issues. Such a course would be of interest to professionals who are interested in transit industry employment and would be attractive to mid-career transit professionals. 

In the third year of the NCTR work program, resources have been programmed for the development of a second public transit course. The initiative will include developing a course outline, gathering and developing reading materials, designing experiential learning exercises, developing materials to facilitate distance-based or web-assisted learning, and packaging materials in notebook or CD form. The course content will be reviewed by practitioners. When completed, the course will be scheduled for an initial delivery. The prospect of using the taped presentation as a self-taught or independent study course will be explored.
