Özet

The aim of this study is to examine the extent to which student-centred instructional strategies are implemented in schools in North Cyprus. Explanatory mixed-method design, where both quantitative and qualitative data were sought, was employed in this study. The quantitative data were collected via the administration of Student-Centred Instructional Strategies Scale (SCISS) to 309 high school teachers. The qualitative data, on the other hand, were gathered through employing semi-structured interviews with 33 teachers. The results of the study demonstrated inconsistencies regarding quantitative and qualitative data collected. While the results obtained from the SCISS indicated that instructional strategies are implemented at a moderately high level, the interviews clearly demonstrated that traditional methods and techniques still dominate high schools in North Cyprus.
