Monparath Charatwattananich, Janpanit Surasin


The aim of this Doctoral research was to explore with the developing of training- research process of an English literacy training program for engineering staff for the work context and to determine how the researcher-reflection effects the training program. The Instructional System Design (ISD); ADDIE model was used as a framework for developing the training program. The sequencing process of ADDIE; Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation was operated in two phases as to seek for a more precise and reliable training program development. The researcher took two roles of an English language trainer and a researcher. The training-research results found that engineers’ skill needed were listening, speaking in work context, and presentation skills that they could learn and apply right at work and they preferred practicing and activities rather than listening to the classroom instructions. The training was a practice-based design using a combination of work-related content / topic and material developed to address the authenticity of work context. The peer-peer interaction helped participants gaining more confidence and learning outcomes. The research suggested that trainer’s ability to facilitate and stimulate the practicing opportunities resulted in learner’s speaking skill improvement.
