Abstract

Based on Bennett's theoretical framework, “The Digital Practitioner,” rooted in Maslow's Hierarchy of Need, this mixed-method study investigated the digital identity of the Pakistani universities' faculty in the COVID-19 context. The data revealed that the faculty is willing to adopt digital identity with modesty, empathy, and positivity while the negative feelings like fear, risk, and mistakes have been accepted with optimism. The implications of the study guide the policymakers in academia to reflect on the teachers' digital identity and address their fears and challenges through institutional support and proper professional development opportunities.
