This study explored the theoretical basis of the teaching competency of university professors in the future society represented by the Fourth Industrial Revolution through literature analysis and the researcher's council. To this end, this study first derived the implications for cultivating of teaching competency of university professors according to the social needs of future social universities. Next, according to the social needs of future social universities, the teaching competency required for university professors was presented. Finally, based on this theoretical argument, the concept of teaching competency of professors in the future society was defined and its sub-elements were presented. As a result of this study, the teaching competency frame of professors in the future society was proposed with 8 capabilities in 3 areas including 2 ability to respond to change, 2 ability to promote innovation, and 4 ability to instruct. Through the theoretical basis proposed in this study, it is hoped that the university professors' teaching competency development plan will be established to prepare for the instability of the uncertain future in the era of the fourth industrial revolution. In addition, it is expected that innovation and change strategies of each university will be established, and class innovation strategies will be established to meet the needs of students.

본 연구는 4차 산업혁명으로 대표되는 미래 사회 대학 교원의 교수역량에 대한 이론적 근거 탐색을 문헌분석과 연구자 협의를 통해 수행하였다. 미래 사회 변화 및 교수역량과 관련하여 이미 활발한 주장 및 논의들이 진행되어, 본 연구에서는 문헌분석을 통해 선행연구의 결과들을 고찰하고 미래 사회의 변화를 탐색하여 교수역량 프레임을 제시하였다. 먼저, 미래 사회 대학에 대한 사회적 요구가 대학 교원의 교수역량에 주는 함의를 먼저 도출하였다. 다음으로, 미래 사회 대학에 대한 사회적 요구에 따라 대학 교원에게 필요한 교수역량을 제시하였다. 마지막으로, 이러한 이론적 논거를 바탕으로 미래 사회 대학 교원의 교수역량의 개념을 정의하고, 그 하위요소를 제시하였다. 연구 결과, 미래 사회 대학 교원의 교수역량으로서 변화대응역량 2개 능력, 혁신추진역량 2개 능력, 수업역량 4개 능력 등 3개 영역 8개 능력을 제안하였다. 결론적으로 본 연구에서 제안한 이론적 근거를 바탕으로 대학 교원의 교수역량 함양 계획을 세워 4차 산업 혁명 시대 불확실한 미래가 갖는 불안정성에 대비하고, 각 대학의 혁신과 변화 전략을 수립하며, 학생의 필요와 시대적 요구에 맞는 수업 혁신 전략을 수립할 수 있기를 기대한다.
