Abstract:Covid-19 has had a significant effect on many areas of education world-wide by causing the need for an increased amount of technology to be integrated into the teaching environment. These technological changes are likely to stay an integral aspect of teaching in the future. This study intends to estimate to what extent technological changes in work characteristics influence university teachers’ engagement in work-related reflection. Literature suggests that the high impact on teaching the technological changes have are the reason for an increase in teachers’ engagement in work-related reflection. The results of the study indicate significant positive predictive effects of changes in work characteristics for work task reflection and social context reflection while no significant predictive effect was found for the impact on task performance reflection. The results also provided that, on average, older employees engaged in more social context reflection than their younger colleagues. Likewise, men tended to engage in more work task and social context reflection than their female colleagues. Thus, the current changes in work characteristics predict an increase in university teachers’ engagement in work task and social context and that age and gender in general have a significant moderating influence on these relationships.
