PACHECO-RUIZ, Carlos; ROJAS-MARTINEZ, Claudia; NIEBLES-NUNEZ, William  and  HERNANDEZ-PALMA, Hugo G.. Organizational development techniques for the technological updating of the faculty in higher education institutions. Form. Univ. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.5, pp.191-202. ISSN 0718-5006.

This research study characterizes organizational development techniques for technology updating of professors teaching at public higher education institutions from the Caribbean region in Colombia. The methodology was descriptive with a non-experimental field design. The population consisted of forty professors. The data was collected using a questionnaire, composed of twelve items, having different Likert scale alternatives. The reliability was 0.80 (Cronbach method), proving that the instrument was reliable. Data were tabulated and interpreted statistically by absolute and relative frequencies, grouped by dimension and indicator. The results showed that institutions apply organizational development techniques to support organizational learning, knowledge management, teamwork, and socialization. In conclusion, it can be said that these processes are promoted by integrating professors with educational projects, which ensure the continuous professional training of professors at public universities in the Caribbean region.
