Dr Wang Ying
Dr Wang Ying, who received her doctorate degree in Linguistics with a research scholarship from the National University of Singapore (NUS), has a deep passion for teaching and learning. Prior to joining Minxin School, she held several successful positions such as a researcher at the Singapore Centre for Chinese Language (SCCL, NTU), an academic vice-principal at a bilingual school, and a head of teaching development for an education group in the China region.
Dr Wang has accumulated a wealth of knowledge in Chinese literature and culture through her experience as an experienced Chinese teacher, which is reflected in her publications and creative writings. She strongly believes that an engaging and joyful learning environment is essential for authentic learning outcomes that will enable learners to achieve academic excellence, enhance their thinking, and develop a global-minded perspective. Dr Wang has devoted herself to leading professional development for Chinese teachers to ensure high-quality education, and has conducted trainings and workshops for various international schools, including Wellington College China, Nord Anglia bilingual schools, and Jinan University. Her training sessions focus on effective teaching methods such as inquiry-based learning, conceptual understanding, thinking skills, collaborative learning, and early academic research development.
Dr Wang has a thorough understanding of various international curriculums, including the Chinese national curriculum, CAIE (O & A level IGCSE), IB, IPC, and has strong abilities in curriculum development and teaching materials design. Her research findings have been presented at numerous international conferences in teaching and learning.
Dr Wang’s expertise in applied linguistics and discourse analysis has led her to focus on digitalised learning, of which she has become an active facilitator and practitioner. She co-created the Chinese corpus in SCCL, which provided a scientific basis for the reform of the new curriculum and textbook development in Singapore. The automatic evaluation and correction system of Chinese compositions that she participated in creating greatly improved the work efficiency of teachers and provided students with more accurate reports on their writing works. Dr Wang plans to continue to use the advantages of digitalised learning to improve the interest and engagement level of classroom teaching and learning while providing a scientific basis for deep learning and graded reading, as well as developing school-based learning materials for Minxin School.
Upon joining Minxin School, Dr Wang brings her enthusiastic and strong passion for education to ensure that learners have the strongest academic foundation for success, and to empower them to become discoverers for new talents.
