Due to the changing nature of learning and teaching in high education, there is a growing need for professional development for being great teachers. This article reports on a research project aimed at investigating the type of a favorite lecturer that is owned by an institution. If the institution can potrait all characters of the lecturer, the institution has much benefit. The mode of the favorite lecturer may increase the spirit of students to study the lesson taught. Using the Research and Development method, the researcher tries to collect data by making interviews with some students who have been taught by the favorite lecturer. The finding of this qualitative method is really surprising because the respondents do not see the favorite person from his education, lesson or gender backgrounds. Their jugdment is only based on his total approach in teaching. In conclusion effective teaching promotes effective learning in the students, and discipline-specific professional development will enhance outcomes for teachers, students, and institution.
