Abstract:With the increase of online learning has come a subsequent rise of cyber-bullying. Bullying has typically been found in the workplace and between students in the classroom, outside of the classrooms, and in recent times, in many forms of social media. Most recently, faculty members have become targets and victims of cyber-bullying. For many, there are not established policies or training on how to react. The current research addresses the scope of the problem, a review of the findings of cyberbullying related to a university where a majority of the coursework is administered online, and a plan for addressing the problem through policies, training, and professional development. The research includes a survey of current online faculty, the findings, and recommendations for addressing the problem.
