The aim of this study was to examine instructors’ views on the principles of critical pedagogy by some variables. The sample included 66 instructors who worked at the Faculty of Education, Celal Bayar University, in 2013-2014 academic year. The research was based on a descriptive survey model. The Critical Pedagogy Principles Scale, developed by Yilmaz 2009, was used as a data collection tool and SPSS 17.00 programme was used for data analysis. The instructors’ views on critical pedagogy were examined by department, seniority, administrative duty or none, title, and age. Their views on critical pedagogy did not differ by gender and department, but difference was established by title, seniority and age. Accordingly, research assistants, instructors with 1 to 5 years of seniority and instructors in the 21 - 27 age group achieved the highest score. There was also a statistically significant relationship between the instructors’ age and views on critical pedagogy; however, this relationship was negative. That is, the older the instructors are, the lower their critical pedagogy scores are.
