This is not only hypocritical but a complete misunderstanding of Cornell notes. Cornell format doesn't dictate the form of the actual note-taking in the least. All it does is require students to actually interact with the material which is, after all, how we actually learn. Fill-ins are the opposite of that and are far more rigid than Cornell notes ever possibly could be.
