TAPASCO, Omar A  and  GIRALDO, Jaime A. Comparative Study about Perception and use of ICT among Teachers of Public and Private Universities. Form. Univ. [online]. 2017, vol.10, n.2, pp.03-12. ISSN 0718-5006.

The purpose of this research was to collect information about the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in university teaching, the perception of the teachers about the ICT and the assessment of the technological infrastructure available, from a comparative perspective between public and private universities. For this, a survey was carried out among 147 teachers from institutions of the Eje Cafetero, Colombia. Factor analysis, multiple correspondence analysis and independence tests were used. Marked differences were found between teachers of public and private universities, some differences with respect to gender, but no significant differences were found in relation to other descriptive variables of the teacher such as age, education level or years of teaching experience. But although the results are favorable to the teachers of private institutions, there is also evidence of a higher level of stress associated with the use of technologies among them.

Keywords : use of ICT; perception about ICT; public and private universities; factorial analysis; multiple correspondence analysis.
