1. Teaching Perspectives Inventory

The Teaching Perspectives Inventory (TPI) is a 45-item inventory that will assess your orientation to teaching.  The TPI is the result of two decades of research in Canada, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, and the United States, which revealed five qualitatively different perspectives on teaching.  The TPI helps you better understand your own views of these perspectives and how you express them through your own beliefs, intentions and actions.  The TPI also helps you share and clarify your ideas when you are drafting a Statement of Teaching Philosophy, when you are expanding your portfolio for teaching reviews, or when you are asked to observe or review someone else’s teaching.
