Over the past few years, Walden’s faculty members Dr. Sickel and Dr. Stadtlander have talked to hundreds of online faculty who work from home about their work environment.

From these discussions, some common problems have emerged for virtual workers, including:

  • Merging of home and work
  • Feeling they "work all of the time"
  • Feelings of isolation

In this presentation, the results from the research will be discussed, including the common issues seen, and methods that others have reported to solve these work / home environment problems, while suggesting ideas to help you evaluate how you do your own online work.
