We are currently accepting applications for the short course ‘New Technologies and Changing Behaviours,’ taking place 14-17 March 2017, at Kellogg College, University of Oxford.
Globally, transport is undergoing important changes in technology and user behaviour. This course offers the latest thinking on how such changes can be understood, and what their interactions mean for the future of transport demand. It explores emerging contemporary mobility cultures in different global regions, the diffusion of new technologies and new perspectives on their role, changing behaviours and energy reduction, and the sociocultural dynamics of behaviour change. The course additionally offers an overview of new and emerging smart technologies and behavioural intervention programmes and provides insights into current projects and initiatives across the globe.
Key speakers include: Professor Emeritus David Banister, Professor Denise Morrey (Oxford Brookes University), Dr Debbie Hopkins (TSU), Dr Tim Schwanen (TSU), Toby Park (Behavioural Insights Team), Professor Graham Parkhurst (UWE Bristol), Professor Lorraine Whitmarsh (Cardiff University). The expertise of the speakers spans both developed and developing countries, and research as well as practice.
You can also apply for one of the other four-day courses on the programme. They cover different aspects of the sustainable transport challenge: transport governance and urban transitions (in June 2017), infrastructures, development and finance (in September 2017), and health and well-being (in December 2017). You can find out more at www.tsu.ox.ac.uk/course. Please note that each course can be taken separately, or in combination with others, allowing participants to tailor a flexible programme based on their interests.
The fees per course cover all materials, 21 contact hours, 3 nights’ en-suite accommodation, and all meals and refreshments during the course (including a formal networking dinner at Kellogg College, University of Oxford). In 2016/17, fees are as follows:
- Private sector: £3,500
- Public sector / NGO / Academic: £1,500
- PhD student: £500
We are able to offer reduced rates for group applications, as well as alumni rates to those attending several of the Global Challenges in Transport courses.
The TSU’s Global Challenges in Transport courses are part of the Oxford Leadership Programme and are delivered in collaboration with Saïd Business School. The programme provides decision-makers from a range of sectors with the necessary skills and expertise, supported by the latest research evidence, to address the complex challenges of delivering sustainable transport solutions.
