Scientific Programme













I’m impressed with the quality of the regional and local speakers, particularly the young clinicians and scientist. As compared to when I first arrived in Singapore, this is light year ahead in terms of the general understanding of expertise in medicine, and in science and biomedicine. It’s really quite thrilling.

Education Symposium II
Using Evidence-based Methods to Enhance Learning: A Sharing by Health Professions Educators

 Track type: Symposium

Date: 22 Sep 2018


 Time: 1400 - 1530

Location: Academia, Level 2, Whitespace

Evidence-based medicine has been the pillar of decision making for clinically important questions about diagnosis, therapy, and many other aspects of healthcare. Similarly, in education, it is important for educators to adopt an evidence-based approach to matters related to teaching and learning. But how could that be done, and what would be the process of consulting educational literature to design and facilitate learning experiences? 

While it might seem daunting, the process of adopting an evidence-based approach to create meaningful experiences for their learners is actually not that impossible. The speakers will be sharing how they successfully made use of best educational practices, culled from educational literature to strengthen their curriculum and sharpen their pedagogical skills.
