Dr. Felix Kronenberg, director of Rhodes’ Language Learning Center, has been voted president-elect of the International Association for Language Learning and Technology (IALLT). This honor is evidence of the esteem and respect the IALLT members have for Kronenberg’s work in the field of language technology and his publication in the area of language center design and administration, according to the association’s current president Harold Hendricks.
The term begins in August 2015 during the 50th anniversary IALLT/FLEAT conference at Harvard University and is a six-year commitment.
Established in 1965, IALLT is a professional organization whose members provide leadership in the development, integration, evaluation and management of instructional technology for the teaching and learning of language, literature and culture. Its strong sense of community promotes the sharing of expertise in a variety of educational contexts.
Kronenberg, an associate professor in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and director of the Language Learning Center, joined Rhodes in 2009. He had held a similar position at Pomona College. His research and professional interests include the design of physical, virtual, and hybrid learning spaces, digital storytelling, and blended learning.
