Frederik Cornillie is the research manager at itec. He is passionate about research and innovation in technology-enhanced learning, and about collaboration between researchers, industrial partners, educational institutions, and other not-for-profit partners aimed at bringing engaging and effective technology-mediated learning solutions to society.
As a jack of all trades and interdisciplinary animal trained in the humanities (in linguistics and the learning sciences more particularly), but dabbling in technology alongside his formal education. Frederik gets his energy from connecting the dots between disciplines and people, as well as from problem-solving and creation, mainly in collaborative settings but also by himself.
His main responsibility at itec is to support the team in developing and carrying out its research strategy. Frederik is very happy to work with such smart and open-minded colleagues! If time allows, he indulges in research on computer-assisted language learning (CALL), his area of specialism, more particularly on the affordances of (technology-mediated) gaming for instructed language learning and language pedagogy. He is particularly proud of having received the Robert Fischer Outstanding Graduate Student award from CALICO, a leading research organization in the field of CALL, for my Ph.D. research and for his service to the field.
