|摘要(英文)：||Over the last decade, there has been an emphasis placed on higher education with a focus on teaching excellence and student learning outcomes. Some countries began to implement professional development programs to assist in developing teaching methodology. Teachers who have completed the programs would be awarded teaching certificate. Some countries use this certificate as a necessary condition for teacher probation, evaluation and promotion. These programs began in the United Kingdom and have gained in worldwide popularity recently. Nowadays, the universities in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong offer these teaching training programs to their teachers. The purpose of this research is to explore the graduate certificate programs in learning and teaching in higher education in Australia and New Zealand. To achieve this purpose, the aims, content, curriculum and assessment of the programs in the top eight higher education universities in Australia and New Zealand were analyzed. Some suggestions for developing the teaching professionalism of teachers in higher education in Taiwan were proposed based on the results of the analysis.|
