Daniel Pratt has identified five perpectives of good teaching - these are
  • Transmission
  • Apprenticeship
  • Developmental
  • Nurturing
  • Social Reform

Read through Pratt's five perpectives of good teaching and try to answer the following questions:

  • What is your dominant perspective? Why do you think this is so?
  • Is there any one 'correct' perspective? Or do we all really adopt a particular perspective with which we are most comfortable?
  • What factors would influence your choice of perspective?

You are now invited to complete an online Teaching Perspectives Inventory (TPI). This will provide you with information about your unique perspective/s of teaching.

After completing the TPI, you should receive a personalized report via e-mail.
Reflect on your TPI report:

  • Were there any surprises in the results?
  • Or were the results what you expected?
