This paper focuses on the concept of professional identity in a higher education (HE) setting and applied to an online context. It is endeavoured to determine whether or not online teaching in HE leads to a change in the professional identity of the lecturer. Identity as a concept is introduced. Drawing on this the main part of the paper explores the area of lecturer identity in an online setting. Dominant themes in this area are shown to include how anonymity of online education can impact identity. Included also is a discussion of online identity markers such as authority, status and power. The findings suggest that teaching in an online environment does in fact lead to changes in the professional identities of lecturers.
