This study aimed to examine social studies teachers' views on time management in the distance education process. In the study, in which phenomenology pattern, one of the qualitative research methods, was used, a semi-structured interview form was applied to 30 social studies teachers. Purposeful sampling method was used while creating the study group. The data obtained in the study were analyzed by content analysis. Within the scope of the study, the answers given by social studies teachers to the research questions were collected in 15 codes. At the end of the study, social studies teachers stated that a good time management saves time and increases the efficiency of the lesson regarding the importance of time management. In addition, social studies teachers focused mostly on technological problems regarding the problems experienced in time management. They stated that this problem was followed by lack of time and problems caused by the students. In the light of the findings, suggestions were made on raising the awareness of students, teachers and parents about time management and solving technological problems.
