The purpose of the study is to reveal the self-evaluations of the prospective teachers on two-and three-dimensional visual teaching materials they have designed in the field of the pedagogical formation education. A qualitative research method was used in the study. The study group was chosen from the prospective teachers who were enrolled in the pedagogical formation education at a state university in Turkey. A questionnaire consisting of three open-ended questions was used. In this questionnaire, the prospective teachers were asked questions about the strengths and weaknesses of the instructional materials they designed and what kind of arrangements they would make if they designed the material again. The data were analyzed descriptively. The views of the prospective teachers on the strengths of the instructional materials they design are collected under seven themes: the characteristics of us, the effect on learning the relation with the subject, the preparation and construction process, the gains to the learners, the presentation of the information and conformity. The opinions of the prospective teachers about the weaknesses of the teaching materials have been collected under five themes. In general, it is seen that the arrangements to be made in the case of redesign are expressed in terms of the weaknesses.
