The data collection tool used in the study was developed by the researcher. Five open-ended questions depending on the purpose and sub-problems of the research were asked to the faculty members. Participatory confirmation and self-reflection strategies were used to ensure the internal reliability of the every collection tool. What they understood from the questions, their opinions, comments were asked to the participants and then it was evaluated whether the questions express something to them and reflect their experiences. The answers were first compared to each other and then to the sub-objectives of the research. Scope of six problems used in the data collection tool was provided with literature, the research problem, the aim of the research and directly with the research questions. The generalization of research findings to similar environments was evident in the findings of descriptive qualitative analysis. In the analysis of the data, descriptive analysis in qualitative data analysis methods was used. The data were analyzed taking into account the themes / dimensions of the research questions. Responses given by the participants in writing regarding the research questions were coded by open coding technique. The expressions of the same size, which were indicated by different lecturers were combined. In this context, the answers obtained from the groups were coded according to these dimensions of the research. These answers were then separated into categories and their frequencies were determined. Then the categories obtained from the answers were collected under a common theme. All these questions are tabled and interpreted from findings, categorizations, and themes. In the research findings, educational environments in the 21st century, educational problems, student expectations, competencies required by educators, problems encountered by educators and key concepts were revealed and analyzed. In all of the five questions asked to participants, fifteen common themes were shared, some of which were jointly addressed.
