Courses taught at Université Laval

I currently teach (in French) four courses in the master's program in land use planning and regional development (M. ATDR) at the Graduate school Land Management  and Regional Planning. Here is the description of these courses:

Fall session: Transport and territorial dynamics

This course focuses on the articulation of transport and land use planning (urban, peri-urban and rural) through the concepts of mobility of people, accessibility to services (including labor markets, shops, community facilities) and the environmental, societal and economic impacts. The notions and concepts of urban and territorial dynamics are approached through various readings giving rise to individual presentations and group discussions, summary presentations made by the professor and a few case studies carried out by the participants in using specialized tools.

Winter Session: Implementing Sustainable Transportation

This course examines methods for implementing sustainable modes of transportation. In this course, transport is studied from a behavioral point of view. The student examines different solutions, including international examples. He is also familiar with sustainability measures and new concepts related to them. The student learns different models and theories of behavior that aim to change the way people move through the territory. Thanks to the knowledge of behavioral sciences and international examples, the participant acquires a better ability to design innovative solutions for his future transport projects.

Winter and fall semesters: Planning and development laboratory-essay I and II

This course consists of carrying out a final writing activity for the student in the master's degree in regional planning and development (ATDR), professional component. This activity is spread over two consecutive semesters. This course makes it possible to study a concrete problem in the field, allowing the student to deal with a large number of methodological and technical aspects. I lead the transport and mobility component of this course. Each year the teaching team (all the professors of the school) meets to choose a place or environment to study, then each teacher develops a project for his team, which means that this course is different each year.
