Teknostress på Uppsala universitet i samband med COVID-19 pandemin

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Uppsala universitet/Informationssystem

Sammanfattning: The phenomenon of technostress can also be seen as a worldwide pandemic (Boyer-Davis, 2020). The transition to e-learning due to the sudden COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has created new demands on teachers and students and their interaction with technology (Galvin et al. 2021). Previous research has discovered higher levels of technostress for both students and teachers when using technology at home. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential effects of the implemented distance-based form of teaching that was enforced on students and teachers at Uppsala University during the pandemic outbreak. The study collected data from students and teachers on a survey comprising eight questions related to technostress and the use of technology. The data were then linked to different stressors introduced by Tarafdar et al. (2007) and Nimrod (2017) to explain the effects of e-learning. The P-E Fit theory was then used to further explain why various effects were prominent. The study found that teachers experienced high levels of primarily techno-overload, with an example being more preparation before lectures. Students experienced a more mixed result, where they saw techno-invasion as the highest effect, while techno-complexity and techno-overload were also prominent. An example of an effect related to techno-invasion that students experienced was the lack of balance between time reserved for studies and free time.
