A widening gap between new academic knowledge in all areas and the habit of exploring and exploiting this precious information by students causes an alarm and need for urgent prevention. WHO’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) require some objective achievements by the year 2030 and further. The responsibility has been enforced on university lecturers, in addition to ensuring higher education learning outcomes (HELO). Therefore, university instructors must be capable of inculcating important psychological characteristics and behavioral changes in the new generations. Thus, this study aimed at pinpointing the significant factors for additional teaching skills of instructors regardless of the area of study. University lecturers from various parts of Thailand with the total of 540 persons participated in this cross-sectional study. This study was based on interactionism model of behavior antecedents which covers psychological, situational factors, and their interactions. Most measuring instruments were summated rating with 10 or more items, each accompanied by a six-point rating scale. The respondents were volunteers who gave their written responses in a conference hall. By applying MRA to the data in the total sample, and in the subsamples, about 70 to 73 predictive percentages with 4 to 6 significant predictors were found. The major dependent variable was the instructor’s teaching behavior for inculcating the psycho-moral strength for academic exploration and knowledge application. By performing ANOVA, three less active types of instructors of instructions were identified, together with three protective factors. Recommendations for further research and training are offered and welcomed.
