Using Warner and Hausdorf's (2009) framework, the authors empirically examined work-life balance and work outcomes among collegiate faculty teaching courses online. Quantitative and qualitative results from 138 online instructors demonstrated that basic psychological need satisfaction was related to higher levels of work-family enrichment, job satisfaction, performance, and intention to teach online courses again and lower levels of work-family conflict and stress. Work support was also related to job satisfaction, performance, and stress but was not related to work-family balance. These findings are important as universities are seeking ways to promote involvement with online education.
