Keywords: Teacher professional development, Teacher’s learning, Teacher supervision program, Glocal Englishes


The purpose of this study was to explore effects of a teacher supervision program to enhance teachers’ learning to teach Glocal Englishes. The participants were 2 in-service English teachers from two different high schools from Nakhon Ratchasima Provincial Administration Organization, who were purposefully selected to participate in this study. The research instruments used for data collection were supervision dialogue, classroom observations, and reflection note. Qualitative data were collected and analyzed by the thematic analysis method.

            The results of this study indicated that the data revealed three themes, which were 1) teacher characteristic which included teacher costume, voice of tone and physical expression, 2) techniques in the classroom that refer about the teaching style that transform the English traditional style instead with Glocal Englishes teaching style, provide various medias in the classroom, focus on the students group work project, gave a chance to use the student’s mobile phone to search the data or information from the internet and emphasized more on the student-centered, and 3) the relationship between student and teacher which included the students feeling about the comfortable, joyful and friendly. The Glocal Englishes classroom’s atmosphere can be relax and happier because teachers try to conduct the new thing from the data shown in three themes and the feedbacks from the students were better and they wanted this learning style again. So, three themes were organized after the teachers implemented with teacher supervision program.
