When higher education policies are taken into consideration, research and innovation attract attention, while education and training responsibilities rarely find a place in these policies. Good university teacher is one of the topics that need to be prioritized with respect to universities’ teaching roles. This mixed-method research intends to examine university student’s and faculty members’ perceptions of university teachers in a Turkish higher education context. A total of 512 university students from a comprehensive public university in Ankara and ten faculty members from the same institution, who received Educator of the Year award, were included in this study for data collection. The stepwise discriminant analysis of the student survey data showed that six essential items distinguish effective vs. ineffective university teachers: well-organized course, comfortable learning atmosphere, concerned about student learning, course being valuable, the self-confidence of the instructor, and effective communication. The inductive content analysis of the faculty interviews provided five main themes: teaching practices, student-centeredness, and communication with students, supportive personality characteristics and subjectmatter knowledge. As a result, four main areas were identified on good university teacher characteristics: quality teaching and learning experience, faculty member-student communication, personality characteristics supporting effective teaching, subject matter knowledge.
