Distance education which provides important contribution to education systems is applied in many fields successfully. Teacher training is another field in which distance education is used widely. Distance education is used for teacher's graduate education as much as teacher's preservice and inservice training at elementary and secondary education level. The main aim of this study is to introduce teacher training programs which have been made through distance education in Turkey between the years of 1986-2005 by Anadolu University Open Education Faculty. For this aim, five teacher education programs at undergraduate compensatory education and undergraduate level used for teacher training for elementary and secondary education were examined in terms of aim, content, teaching-learning process and evaluation. The study indicates that programmes are archived for different purposes and education is given to big masses in quantity in the beginning. It is also concluded in the research that programmes begin at pre-undergraduate level then rise to undergraduate level and then are transformed into modern applications from classic distance education.
