Abstract

The aim of the study was to investigate teachers’ attitudes towards doing research in the Department of Language Studies at King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT). The subjects were ten English language teachers who had been teaching in the department for more than four years. The subjects were interviewed separately, based on questions which covered advantages, disadvantages, problems, solutions, and support in doing research. The findings reveal that, while most of the subjects seemed to understand the purposes and advantages of doing research for teaching, there was one subject who did not; also, most of the subjects expressed the need for the department to support them in doing more research and by providing statistics teachers, mentors, research training and funding.
