This study mainly focuses on the issues and the strategies of higher education faculty teaching professional development. The research is based on one university located in the northern part of Taiwan. In the year of 2017, ten sessions of qualitative semi-structured group interview were held from March to May. Twenty five full-time faculty members were interviewed (2 -3 interviewees per session). The main purpose of the interview focuses on the problems they met while teaching, including the practice of classroom teaching, the strategies of teaching adaptation, the resources of faculty teaching professional development, and faculty's expectation of school administration assistance. The results of the study suggest that direct motivation from faculty is an effective way to facilitate students' learning, such as encouraging students to develop their learning potentials, regularly updating teaching materials, bringing new technology to teaching to develop class interaction, applying both differentiated instruction and remedial teaching to narrow the big gap of students' learning ability, improving students' learning autonomy through group cooperation, developing students' learning strategies, their ability of critical thinking and advantage in job market, and understanding students' learning and life planning problems through teacher-student informal meeting. At the end of the research, the suggestions and advice about teacher professional development are given to the higher education faculty and the center for teaching and learning.
