The purpose of the study was to investigate factors which influenced faculty participation in innovation and scientific research. 462 English language teachers from common colleges in China were asked to report the factors hindering their research engagement via a questionnaire, and 20 of them were interviewed face to face. The finding revealed that by addressing the 7 major hindering factors of teachers’ research engagement i.e. lack of research opportunities, lack of motivation, lack of research knowledge and skills, conventional conception of research, time constraint, lack of effective management system and insufficient material and supplies, teachers’ research and innovation in higher education can be enhanced.
