Your SingHealth Story: Dr Selena Young

“I am a product of the classroom which was unidirectional and didactic in nature. There was more reliance on books and physical journal papers for academic research back then, whereas, today, nearly everything is available online. Back then, teachers may not receive feedback from students so easily. Now, learners have instant access to feedback portals and may use social media to give immediate feedback to their teachers. There has been a conscious movement also from a pedagogical perspective – moving from a behaviourist to constructivist approach, where students today are more actively involved in self-discovery and constructing their own knowledge, versus passively receiving information.”

- Dr Selena Young, Head & Senior Principal Speech and Language Therapist, Craniofacial Pathology, KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital
