Prompted by the quickly evolving role of higher education in a competitive world market, this study proposes that a typology could be a useful tool in conceptualising future PD needs of teaching academics. This study contributes to the growing research on professional development (PD) of academics who teach in Higher Education (HE) in Australia. Specifically, this exploration represents teaching academics’ perceptions, i.e. expectations, attitudes and experiences, of learning and teaching PD within a regional Australian HE institution. Informed by the exploration of PD in HE, a typology that will inform future design of learning and teaching PD will be developed and evaluated in three phases. The final typology has practical implications for both teaching academics' and academic developers' practices in regional Australian universities.
