Aloha kākou – Welcome to TiPPS!

The Teacher Portfolio & Preparation Series (TiPPS) is designed to help future language educators (specifically graduate students in world language departments at U.S. universities) prepare for the job market they will face upon graduation. The original 7-part in-person TiPPS workshop has now been converted and expanded into an 8-module self-study online course.

Its 19 free TED-Ed lessons focus on helping participants develop a teacher portfolio (statement of teaching philosophy, documentation of their teaching) and prepare for a job hunt (tips for conducting job searches, tailoring curriculum vitae, writing effective cover letters, and preparing for interviews).

Want an overview of the TiPPS series and what it offers? We recommend starting with Module 1, Lesson 0: Intro to the Teacher Portfolio & Preparation Series (TiPPS).

Want more? For a nominal fee, you can pursue the optional TiPPS digital badge and gain access to the TiPPS Discord community.
