About Kris Van De Poel

As an applied linguist, I am intrigued by how foreign languages are used for specific purposes. Consequently, my research revolves around language-discordant academic and professional contexts. 
Currently, I am engaged in projects with colleagues in South Africa, Germany, Hawaii, Italy and Austria. Topics are: language awareness raising in teaching and learning (and the use of social media), learning and learner variables (self-efficacy, acculturation, metacognition), academic literacy, professional communication and more in particular health care communication, ...
These domains are situated in the heart of the nexus of teaching and research and contribute to the scholarship of teaching and learning.
