Information and Communication Technology (“ICT”) has unprecedentedly facilitated a dynamic interaction among peer groups throughout the world. It is presented in this paper how university teachers in Thailand are making the use of ICT to achieve their objective goals, by tailoring the research to probe for eliciting a few objective answers through specific questioning; questions including, if teachers are commoditizing resources through knowledge society, if they have transformed themselves in order to be a part of a knowledge society, what factors may stand as barriers to be an active member of the knowledge society, what aspects are more influential through the knowledge society for teaching, and lastly, if teachers believe that the knowledge society is a means to gain a pedagogical excellence. Further, a comparative analysis of the perception difference between Thai teachers and foreign teachers is shown, and in conclusion, a recommendation is made so that the knowledge society may be utilized by the university teachers in Thailand in order to achieve a better way of intellectual exchange.
