Parallel to international interest, Turkey has embraced IT as a field of study and practice. This qualitative study aims to investigate the existing conceptions of experts on Instructional Technology in Turkey and reveal the current status of the field from their perspectives in terms of its definition, purpose, scope, and research approaches. The experts were chosen from among Turkish academics having a PhD degree in the field. The experts found gaps on the methodological aspects of existing studies.
