Education is an activity to prepare for future society as well as present society, and throughout history, the important role of teachers is to cultivate students who are suitable and necessary in their society. As society has been rapidly changing, teachers have to see future society with more active and positive views and reflect on how to engage in future education. The view of teaching profession refers to a cognitive frame of viewing and understanding the profession, and teacher's attitude and value on it.
To date, teaching profession has been approached by three types of views such as sacred as calling, laboring as mental-working, and professional based on specialty and self-regulation. However, these views have limitations in implementing future education. Accordingly, teachers are required to make change in their roles as curriculum experts, reformists in teaching skills, and experienced mentors of students. These traits are expected to contribute to establishment of the view of professional service as a new view of teaching profession, which focus the expertise of teaching content and skills, and volunteering service for learners at center.
