LecturingLecturing is one of the methods that come first, where the teacher is in the center. It is a method where the teacher actively describes topics and the students are passive listeners. With this method, lesson proceeds in the form of report, description and explanation.
DebateDepending on the situation, debate is a tool that allows all students, or a specific portion of the class to participate in the lesson. In this method, members of the group discuss a topic by addressing the various points of view and discuss alternative opinions about problem-solving.
Case Study Case studies require students to actively participate while using an analytical perspective to think about real and problematic events. The problematic event may be real or very close to real life. Student(s) working on the documents that include the necessary data and descriptions of the
Problem SolvingThe name given to any doubt or ambiguity that arises is, a problem. Problems which usually have a role in human life, that have preventing or annoying aspects are solved by considering the stages of scientific methods. (a) Problems are determined. (b) The problem is identified.

Scenario-based teaching Although it is similar to the Case Study method, there is a fictional approach in the scenario. The subject can be presented by inserting it in to a fiction and can also lead the student’s to producing their own scenarios.
ProjectProject-based learning is a learning way which leads students to deal with interesting problems and to create extraordinary products at the end of this. It allows students to use their creativity and it requires them to look at events perceptively.
Technical TourIs a method that takes learning to the out of the classroom. It is a method that provides students to make direct observations and to gain information by taking them to places, such as factories, museums, libraries, various government agencies, mountains, forests, lakes, parks and gardens.
Observation Although we generally get information related to the nature through observations, the Observation method can also be used for other situations and under other conditions. We try to reach certain generalizations by thinking about our findings which we gather from our observations.
InterviewThis is when the teacher brings in (writers, artists, designers, writers, illustrators, etc.) because he/she is not equipped with the adequate facilities to do with certain issues or situations. It is a technique that triggers the senses of students. In some cases, students interview certain people

The opposite panelIs one of the two groups just asking the question, while another assumes the role of responder. With this technique it is possible to repeat / revise issues that have already been processed. The Class is divided into two.

Vision Development This technique is not all the students in small groups, but all students participating in a study as a class. It is a discussion technique, used to teach students to respect others views and improve their vision, when thinking about conflicting points of view. Topics with apparent contradictions 
Brainstorming Brainstorming is a group work process that has been regulated to reach solutions for a problem without limitations or evaluation. The purpose of brainstorming is to make it easier for students to express themselves and to generate ideas. This technique is used as a high-level discussion
