Although the outcome-based approach of Abet EC 2000 is widely used in the United States as a tool to enhance learning and teaching processes, and to assure quality improvement, it is a brand-new phenomenon in the engineering education of Taiwan. It is an increasing concern that the traditional lecture-based instruction is failing to fulfill the needs of development of active learning skills of engineering students in Taiwan. Through a careful literature review, this paper first summarizes the crucial events in engineering education that led to the formation, implementing, and assessing of a team-based faculty development workshop. These will provide possible implications for improving teaching and learning effectiveness of engineering education in Taiwan.
