Getting Started

Pratt & Collins' "Teaching Perspectives Inventory" (TPI)

The TPI is an online survey (link below) to help identify your own personal orientation to teaching, even if you are not currently teaching, or have never taught before. It is free, and only takes 15-20 minutes to complete. It can be very useful to help one get started on a teaching philosophy statement and may help serve as a catalyst to thinking about drafting and organizing your own Teaching Portfolio. The Pratt & Collins' "Teaching Perspectives Inventory" (TPI) is available at:

(a clip from their website)
The Teaching Perspectives Inventory measures teachers' orientations to their roles as managers of the learning process. The Inventory yields five alternative points of view (perspectives) on teaching by asking structured questions about teachers' actions in the teaching setting, their intentions how they organize the learning situation, and their beliefs about fundamental principles of teaching and learning.
