PALACIO-MARTINEZ, Jorge A.; HINOJO-LUCENA, Francisco J.  and  RODRIGUEZ-GARCIA, Antonio M.. Pedagogical Developmentalism Agricultural Technology Program of the Politécnico Colombiano Jaime Isaza Cadavid. Form. Univ. [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.5, pp.79-90. ISSN 0718-5006.

This article presents the results of a research that analyzes the academic curriculum of the Agricultural Technology program of the Politécnico Colombiano Jaime Isaza Cadavid, incorporating aspects related to the developmentalism current, the rural development, and some international factors that molded technical education and technology in Colombia. The methodological focus was mixed, with qualitative data obtained from a bibliographic review and interviews. Quantitative data was obtained through the use of a questionnaire administered to curricular actors. The analysis showed that the norms applicable to technological education and the National System of Higher Education maintain the original developmentalism idea. Based on the results of the study, it was concluded that both the legal framework and the program emphasize on the rational curricular model, and have market tendencies and functionalist theories without connections to the socio-cultural dimension seen in the rural territorial approach.

Keywords : developmentalism; education laws; technological education; curriculum model; territorial approach.
