The purpose of this study is to draw implications about a practice of university faculty member's teaching reflection by considering the concept, process, and content of reflection as a theoretical basis of teaching reflection. The concept of reflection is based upon 'reflection-in-action' suggested by $Sch{\ddot{o}}n$, and the process and content of reflection is explained through Korthagen's Core Reflection model. The following three implications conclude: First, a faculty member should write a reflection journal by observing and reflecting consistently one's own behavior in a context of teaching. Second, the center for teaching and learning should provide an orientation and consultation about the content and process of teaching reflection. Finally, sharing lessons with the colleague faculty member is required to make an effective reflection for each faculty member.
