The aim of this study is to determine teaching styles of faculty members employed in several universities in Turkey. To that end, 105 faculty members employed in Erzincan Binali Yıldırım University, Atatürk University, Erzurum Technical University, Bartın University, Sakarya University, Adıyaman University, Karamanoğlu Mehmet Bey University and Gazi University participated in the study. In this study, Grasha’s Teaching Styles Inventory was used as the data collection tool. In the analysis of data, t-test, One-Way ANOVA and correlation analysis were utilized as well as mean and standard deviation values. Results of the study revealed that teaching styles of the faculty members did not differ by gender. In the analyses conducted with respect to academic title, a statistically significant difference was found between those with title of lecturer and associate professor and those with title of professor in terms of expert style and personal style sub-dimensions. Considering teaching styles, expert, authoritarian and personal styles were found to be high; facilitator and delegator styles were found to be moderate among faculty members.
