The purpose of this study is to examine the perceptions of instructors teaching Turkish to foreigners on lesson plans. In order to collect data for the study, 175 instructors teaching at the Turkish Teaching Centers of universities across Turkey were contacted in the 2021-2022 academic year. In order to reach the study group, the scale system created in the “Google forms” software was used. The data collection process continued for 8 weeks in total. “The Scale of the Perceptions of Instructors Teaching Turkish to Foreigners on Lesson Plans” is a 3-point Likert-type measurement tool consisting of 30 items. For the evaluation of the study data, in addition to the descriptive statistics, the t test was used in comparisons of two groups with normal distribution, and the ANOVA test was used for the comparison of three or more groups. As far as the results of the study is concerned, while there was no statistically significant difference between the perceptions of the instructors teaching Turkish to foreigners on lesson plans by gender (p>.05), there were significant differences by their graduation status (p<.05) and professional seniority (p<.05). The SPSS 24.0 program was used for statistical analysis.
