Bio (via ORCID)
Sabine Sypré is a doctoral student in the Department of Psychology and Pedagogical Sciences. Her main research interests are in gifted education, motivation and self-determination. She is particularly interested in issues concerning underachieving gifted students. Sabine is a ECHA-Specialist in Gifted Education and is currently cooperating in the research valorization of Project TALENT, a research project on motivation of gifted students in Flanders. Sabine studied civil architecture and engineering at UGent and worked as an architect engineer for 20 years. Because her four children turned out to be highly gifted, she got interested in giftedness and completed the ECHA-Specialist in Gifted Education training at the Radboud university of Nijmegen. After starting her own business in counseling gifted children and their parents and training teachers in gifted education, she got the opportunity to start a PhD in Psychology at UGent and KU Leuven in Octobre 2018. She is presently conducting an intervention study on the effectiveness of a program she developed when she was working with gifted underachieving adolescents in her own practice. Sabine’s other research work concerns the effectiveness of teaching styles on the motivation of gifted students.
