Purpose: As the times change, the teaching and learning environment naturally changes. The recent “COVID-19” situation facing the world has brought many changes to the educational environment in Korea. By the way, there are a lot of social things out there. Therefore, this paper proposes the core competence of professors who will flexibly conduct innovative teaching methods even in crisis situations. Method: This study analyzed thesis data applying the innovative teaching method from 2010. In addition, a literature study was conducted to collect public education and higher education materials to derive instructor competency in the untact era. Results: Instructor competency for innovative teaching methods in the untact era was derived as follows. First, the instructor should pay attention to prescribing the optimal course of study in order to derive the learning outcomes that the learner expects. In particular, as the 21st century enters, instructional design skills using ICT are required because teaching methods become diverse. Therefore, above all, instructors should have systematic instructional design skills and establish instructional strategies accordingly. Second, because non-face-to-face classes are activated with COVID-19 , learning curation skills are required to develop class contents and operate e-learning. Since Korea has a smooth internet environment, various attempts are possible. There is a need for digital literacy to develop high-quality educational materials by developing and modifying various instructional contents necessary for teaching and learning. Third, in the 21st century, creativity is important, so rather than teaching students simple knowledge, we need to help them form their own knowledge. Therefore, the role of instructors should be coached to discover the potential of students through key questions. Conclusion: In order to carry out a good education, various abilities of the instructor are required. In particular, when a special situation such as “COVID-19” is encountered, the instructor s ability to perform flexible teaching and learning has a great influence on learners. Therefore, in order to cultivate creative talents of the 21st century, it is very important to develop teacher competency.
