Abstract:Due to the corona pandemic, many students and thus also lecturers were forced to switch to online teaching. This study examines how the shift from face-to-face classes to online teaching changes the technology-related stress experienced by lecturers. The changes in work characteristics are considered to be the main trigger for the technology-related stress and afterwards it was examined to what extent there were differences in the stress level in the different branches of science. Lastly, it was considered whether age plays a role in the perceived stress. All respondents were lecturers at universities or colleges and were asked to fill out an online questionnaire. Afterwards, a multivariate analysis was performed to analyse the effect of changes in work characteristics on technostress. Moreover, a UNIANOVA analysis and a linear regression analysis were performed to investigate the moderating effect of the different branches of science and the age of the respondents. The result showed employees who experienced changes in work characteristics were more likely to experience technostress uncertainty. This effect was additionally increased by advancing age. However, the different branches of science did not moderate the relationship between the changes in work characteristics and technostress uncertainty or technostress overload.
