The purpose of this study is to investigate EFL Instructors’ perception and practices on learner autonomy at the School of Foreign Languages at nine geographically diverse public Turkish universities. In the study, mixed methods approach was adopted. The study was conducted with 96 EFL Instructors and the data were collected through a questionnaire and interviews. The findings of this study revealed that the instructors had highly positive views on different aspects of learner autonomy. They stated that learner autonomy should be developed in the learning process by involving learners in decisions taken and they were of the opinion that they developed learner autonomy in their learners. Although they were positive about the desirability of nearly all aspects of learner autonomy, it was found out that they did not perceive it as much feasible as they perceived it desirable.
