|摘要(英文)：||The purpose of the study is to explore and understand the experience of implementing teaching consultation programs in higher education institutions in Taiwan. To achieve this aim, the websites of all 118 universities in Taiwan were searched and the documents related to teaching consultation were collected and analyzed. The directors of three centers of teaching development at universities in the United States and four faculties which are involved in teaching consultation at universities in Taiwan were interviewed. The results show that: fifty-two universities (44% of all universities studied) offered the consultation service for their teachers in Taiwan; and the teaching consultants in the university were selected from the faculty body. The consultants were all full-time professors, served as part-time teaching consultants, and were paid by the hour for the time they spent on consultation. The process of teaching consultation includes sharing experiences and attending speeches. The teaching consultation service is always combined with teaching evaluation. If teachers receive negative teaching evaluation results, they are required to use the teaching consultation service. This policy makes teachers reluctant to use the consultation service in case they might be misjudged by their peers as poor teachers. It is a challenge to increase teachers willingness to use this service and have a more positive attitude about using consultation services. Based on the findings of this study, several suggestions are proposed on how to improve this service in universities in Taiwan.|
