In this study, it was aimed to determine the tendencies of faculty members working in various units of Niğde Ömer Halisdemir University towards active learning. In the study, the general survey method, which is one of the research methods frequently used in large groups in line with the purpose of the study, was used to describe a situation to be examined at a good level. The study was conducted in the autumn term of the 2016-2017 academic year. The population of the study consisted of faculty members working at Niğde Ömer Halisdemir University and the sample consisted of 96 faculty members determined according to the purposeful sampling method, one of the sampling methods. In the purposive sampling method, it is important to select the sample from easily accessible and applicable units due to the limitations in terms of time, cash and labour force until the researcher reaches a sample group required by the researcher. The first data collection tool of the study is the active learning disposition scale for faculty members developed by the researchers. Reflection papers and unstructured interview forms are the other data collection tools developed and applied by the researchers. In the analysis of the data obtained in the research, descriptive analysis, content analysis and ANOVA t-test analysis factor analysis techniques were used. As a result of the research, it was found that although the active learning tendencies of the faculty members were at a high level and they had knowledge of the concept of active learning, they did not use this method much in their lessons.
