In recent years, the number of universities in Taiwan has grown significantly, as well as the number of teachers. The conditions for employing university teachers are based on their professional academic and practical background. Therefore, the affirmation of a university teacher's professional and academic qualifications should be supported by his relevant educational background and publications. However, there is a lack of working guidelines and relative measurement tools regarding teachers' professional teaching competencies. At the same time, the Ministry of Education is giving impetus to the promotion of instructional quality. Schools in Taiwan are starting to work on promoting teachers' professional and teaching competencies. However, most teachers in universities are undertaking in-service training or studying. The development of university teachers' professional teaching competencies and training is still insufficient in terms of systematic training programs and curriculum design. Therefore, this study utilizes a CBT (Competency-Based Training) model, which is broadly used by professionals of educational curriculum design, integrates it with the popular e-learning information technology in order to form an e-CBT Model, and then develops indicators of professional teaching competence in university teachers and a structure for training programs. For future studies, it is suggested that researchers can, in accordance with this systematic model, develop e-learning teaching materials. Thus, universities can apply this model to assist teachers' in-service training and professional development, and can expect to increase the overall teaching effectiveness of the school.
