Education is the backbone of any economy and educators are the biggest actors of the education system. Their competence development is very important. The previous literature showed that faculty development is possible through various development techniques and there are a lot of techniques that are adopted from traditional time and some are developed recently after recognizing their need. The authors in this article have made a critical analysis of these traditional and modern faculty development techniques and their appropriateness for the development of different competencies among educators of higher education. This study has been carried out through literature review. The study concludes that learning by teaching community is the most important technique for competence development of teachers followed by learning from students feedback, and mentoring programmes.
